Several hours after Rangers won the SPL in May, a husband and father of four called Kevin McDaid was attacked and brutally murdered by bigots in Coleraine, County Derry in the North of Ireland.

The attackers had conspired in a public house to go and 'Kill a Taig', a Taig Being a derogatory term for someone religiously Catholic and ethnically and nationally Irish. Kevin was viciously attacked and died as result of the injuries that had been brutally inflicted.

In the ensuing moments Kevin's wife was also attacked by the mob, leaving her with various bruises and two black eyes. Almost at the same time Damian Fleming,a neighbour and friend of Kevin McDaid was also attacked, the modus operandi the same, a baying mob inflicting serious injuries around his head.

Amazingly Damian survived but is still in hospital today, over a month after the brutal attacks.

Celtic fans, both in Ireland and Scotland have decided it would be fitting if the Celtic family could come together and make a contribution to help in some way which will offer Mrs McDaid and her four children some financial security as they contemplate the future without a loving husband and father. Kevin, a lifelong Celtic supporter worked within the community to try to bring people together, perhaps ironically his presence in the streets that evening was to help diffuse tensions in and around the area.
