Bradley J (2020) Lisbon Lions: why Celtic's historic 1967 European Cup win was a defining moment for the Irish diaspora in Scotland. The Conversation. 16.03.2020.

Abstract
First paragraph: Like anywhere else in the world on St Patrick’s Day, where there are people of Irish Catholic descent there will be celebrations of national pride – and the same is true of Scotland. But for many people of Irish descent in Scotland, there is one particular cause for celebration that eclipses even St Patrick’s Day. It’s the story of how an iconic – and unexpected – win for a Glasgow football team in Portugal 50 years ago raised the esteem and restored the pride of a marginalised community.
