Hibernian Football Club (informally known as "Hibs") is a Scottish football club from Edinburgh. Along with rivals Hearts, they represent Edinburgh in the Scottish Premier League. They are currently managed by Tony Mowbray. The club was founded in 1875 by Irish born football enthusiasts, and currently plays at the Easter Road ground in Leith. Hibs originally played at a ground near the Meadows, in the south of Edinburgh's Old Town but moved to Easter Road in the 1880s. They were the first major club in Scotland formed out of the immigrant Irish Catholic population (hence the name, from Hibernia, the Latin name for Ireland). As the first such team, their example led to the creation of Dundee Hibernian (now Dundee United) and Celtic.
