Celtic will all be using the tournament as an integral part of their preparation for the new season and, as such, will be bringing their full-strength first-team squad.

The competition will see the Celtic first team led by Neil Lennon visit Ireland to play against top class opposition for the first time in over ten years.

Lennon said: "I feel privileged as Celtic Manager to be able to take the first-team squad over to Ireland to play in the Dublin Tournament against some top-class opposition. Obviously the club has very strong ties with Ireland and with our massive fan-base there it promises to be a special occasion for myself, the players and the Celtic fans."
