Dr Michael Connolly is currently lecturing in Sport Management at the University of Stirling, 
placed within the Faculty of Health Science and Sport.


His research is centred within the Sport division and over the past five academic years he has worked towards producing the world's first biography of Brother Walfrid - most recognised as the prime founder of Celtic Football Club in Glasgow in 1887/88. Michael's thesis is titled "Faith, Community and Football: The Life of Brother Walfrid" and draws on fresh primary source material uncovered through rigorous archival work in Scotland, Ireland, England and France. 


The research project reached completion earlier this year, with the thesis published as a book titled Walfrid: A Life of Faith, Community and Football on 1st November 2022 by Argyll Publishing.
