Built by Hays for their own fleet, Celt was sold on in 1906 to Carnarvonshire & Merioneth Steamship Co.  Again in 1917 to G Pitwood of Newport, then on to a T Nicholas of Swansea before ending up with the Admiralty in 1920, when her registration is withdrawn. She was reported scrapped that same year. 

The photograph below was taken in 1907 and the fact that she is shown alongside the Beaumaris registered "Seven Brothers" suggests that this is almost certainly the first "Celt" and not her 1907-built successor. Can anyone help with the location ?  .
