With Dalymount Park set to undergo redevelopment, the home of Irish football in its current guise is nearing the end of an era. Bohemian FC are asking supporters to play their part in saying goodbye to the old ground.
For years the headquarters of the national team, Dalymount Park, with its iconic floodlights, has played host to some of the biggest games, and biggest names in Irish football history. Names like Pele, Giles, and Charlton have graced the sacred turf, but the current stadium is set to be redeveloped, with Bohemians and Shelbourne as anchor tenants, having been bought by Dublin City Council.
Ahead of the 2017 season kick-off, Bohemians have put together a short feature on the famous venue, narrated by the club’s poet-in-residence Lewis Kenny.
