The Newry Willie Maley Memorial Group, are putting their feet down for a sponsored walk “Green and White on the Greenway” which will take place in Newry, Willie Maley’s home town on Sunday at 11am. The popular greenway route is sandwiched between the Newry Canal and Newry River – William Street to Victoria lock.
The surrounding area will be covered in Celtic flags and all members of the walk will be decked out in the famous green and white of our beloved club.
Celtic songs, smoke bombs and a drone will be filling the air and young and old will get the chance to have a photo with the “big cup” as the European Cup will be present.
All in all the group have received phenomenal support so far (Just over 6 weeks since they made the group public) and they hope that this wave of support will continue as they strive to ensure that they provide a worthwhile memorial to “Mr Celtic”.
They really appreciate all the support offered at the minute and would really appreciate it if their social media handles could be promoted to try and reach out to the global Celtic Family as they attempt to spread the word. (See Twitter & Facebook details below)
They would also really like to thank the phenomenal support received on social media (over 2000 twitter followers in under 6 weeks and hundreds of fans on Facebook) from the Celtic family along with some of the sizeable donations that they have received from the fans locally – namely Lurgan No.1 CSC (£1000) & Banbridge CSC (£240). This has prompted a real wave of enthusiasm for the Celtic fans for this coming Sunday.
