October 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the tragic passing of one of Bohemians’ favourite sons – Jackie Jameson.

Affectionately known as ‘The Great Man’, Jackie left a lasting impact on all those who saw him grace the Dalymount turf in the 1980s. Worth the admission price alone, he was undoubtedly the shining light in what was an otherwise dark decade for the Gypsies.

Cast aside by Johnny Giles at Shamrock Rovers 1978, Jackie spent three years with St Patrick’s Athletic. But in 1981, he moved to Bohemians and it was under the nurturing eye of mentor Billy Young that Jackie found his true home and a legend was born.


A constant target for Jim McLaughlin’s all-conquering Rovers side of the era, Jackie’s shatterproof loyalty to the Dalymount faithful further cemented his status as one of the true icons of the club.

Here, in a three-part special, pays homage to The Great Man…

In Part 1, BohsTV’s ANDY DONLAN speaks to lifelong fans who relive their memories of watching Jameson play.

In Part 2, Evening Herald journalist AIDAN FITZMAURICE steps back in time as he recalls growing up when The Great Man was at his best.

In Part 3, lifetime supporter DAVID HALL poses a soul-searching question: Could we have done more for Jackie?



We asked our followers on Facebook to submit questions for a Q&A with Bohemians midfielder Keith Ward. We picked the best 10 and put them to him;

Q. 1) Bohs’ two main highlights of the season were undoubtedly beating rivals Shamrock Rovers 4-0 in Dalymount and then subsequently getting our first win against them out in Tallaght. Both were special, but which was your favourite?

KARL MOORE: I’d say the 4-0. Obviously mainly because I scored twice, which was special. But a scoreline like that against your rivals is a total embarrassment, which was just great from our point of view.

KEITH WARD: I’d say the beating away was even more special than the 4-0. It was just amazing. To be part of the first Bohs team to beat them there was just a great feeling for all of us. In both games, you could see how much it meant to the fans. It was amazing.

Part 1 (of 3)






Club legend Tony O’Connor is back on board to help deliver some silverware – or ‘silver-you-wear’ to be precise – for Bohemians.

Having joined in 1992, ‘Toccy’ was a jewel in the Bohemian crown for an incredible 11 seasons, the highlight of which was his winner in the 2001 FAI Cup final.

He helped bring enough silverware to Dalymount Park in the twilight years of his Bohs career – two leagues and a cup in total.

But nearly a decade on from his last game in red and black, his deft touch is back to deliver some more!


Hand-crafted by ‘Toccy’ at his company Celt Clan Jewellers, special edition sets of silver cuff-links are now available to order online from the Bohs Store at a price of €72.

The set – engraved with the Bohemian FC crest – is the first product in the club’s exciting new Premium Gifts range.

As well as Toccy, Peterson’s of Dublin are on now on board too – with Bohs hip flasks (€35) and Bohs Zippo lighters (€32) now available from the online store.

The Premium Gifts range is perfect for husband, father, son or brother – so this is the perfect opportunity for those of you thinking of getting some Christmas shopping done early!
