The Celts Strike Again is the second studio album by the Serbian Irish folk/Celtic rock band Orthodox Celts released in 1997. Besides covers of traditional Irish songs, the album features two songs written by the members of the band, "Drinking Song" and "Blue".

The album featured numerous guest musicians: actress Ana Sofrenović on vocals (on the song "Loch Lomond"), Vampiri member Aleksandar Eraković on backing vocals, Stočari member Branko Vitas on banjo, Pachamama (the band Orthodox Celts recorded the live album Muzičke paralele with) member Milan Mihaljčić on several instruments and Renesansa member Žorž Grujić on zurla and gajde.

In the cover of the traditional Irish song "I'll Tell Me Ma" the band replaced the line 'She's the belle of Belfast City' with 'She's the belle of Belgrade City'.
