May your love shine a light!

Ahead of last week’s launch of a book comprising of over 70 of the best articles to appear on Come Here To Me, we were delighted to be able to republish one of Ciaran Murray’s Bohemians-related posts from the acclaimed blog…

“Walking up the North Circular Road, it’s impossible not to be taken in by the site of the historic floodlights of Dalymount Park. Part of Dublin’s skyline for over fifty years, they stand like dinosaurs from another age, beacons calling the League of Ireland faithful to Phibsboro on match nights.

These kinds of pylons are a rare, dying breed proper to stadiums in the lower echelons of football, and reminders of its urban, working class roots. Nestled behinds rows of Victorian houses and Phibsboro Shopping center, finding Dalymount without them would be a struggle….”

VIDEO: AARON CALLAGHAN & OWEN HEARY

BohsTV’s ANDY DONLAN got the views of Bohemians manager Aaron Callaghan and skipper Owen Heary in the aftermath of the end-of-season 4-1 defeat at home to Drogheda United on Friday night.

In Part 1, Callaghan deals with the speculation surrounding the future of his captain and assistant.

And having been well beaten by the Drogs, Callaghan also speaks of his disappointment at “surrendering the game”, his discussions with players for next season and his own future at the club.

READ MORE

“We’ve offered Owen two years on his contract and we are hopeful that he’ll stay.”

In Part 2, Heary reflects on the 2012 Airtrictiy League season and applauds Callaghan’s footballing philosophy.

The former Shelbourne man states that he is going nowhere and selects Bohemians’ goal of the season … almost!

“I think we’ve underachieved this year in general.”
