INNER CITY HELPING HOMELESS

Bohemian defender Dano Byrne was spotted out and about doing his bit for Inner City Helping Homeless earlier this week by supporter Liam Hoban.

Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH) is a charity based in Dublin city centre. The group was formed in November 2013 as they sought to take action against the ever-growing homeless crisis which is currently visible on the streets of Dublin today.

ICHH provide a much-needed service to homeless rough sleepers across Dublin City. Through their volunteers and group leaders, they distribute essential basic needs such as food and clothing to those less fortunate.

They set out on the streets from 11pm and cover both the north and south inner-city, meeting in excess of 100 rough sleepers each night.

To find out more about their work, how to get involved or how to donate, check out their website, like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

LONG SIGNS PRENDERGAST AND O’BRIEN

Bohemian manager Keith Long has signed former Drogheda United captain Derek Prendergast and ex-Bradford City midfielder James O’Brien as he puts the finishing touches on his squad for 2015.

The duo join up with the Gypsies having played under Long for Athlone Town last season.

Defender Prendergast, 30, began his League of Ireland career with Bray Wanderers before spending two years with Drogheda United under Mick Cooke.

Long said: “Derek brings experience and he’s a very good defender. He captained Drogheda to the League Cup two years ago and was one of the key men in the Drogs team that finished league runners-up that season.

“I know from having working with him last year that he’s a real leader in the dressing room.”

A former Ireland Under-19 international and Birmingham City youth, 24-year-old O’Brien will be familiar to Dalymount Park regulars.

Long said: “Bohs fans should know James already – he scored twice against Bohs at Dalymount last season!

“James has a good pedigree and has played 25 games at League 2 – a decent level – for Bradford before.

“When he came home, he couldn’t really break in to a good St Pat’s team but he showed his ability when he was with Longford and Athlone.

“He scored six goals from midfield last year and we think he can improve on that here.”

Signed: Robbie Creevy (UCD), Kealan Dillon (Athlone Town), Lorcan Fitzgerald (St Patrick’s Athletic), Marc Griffin (Dundalk), Dylan Hayes (Athlone Town), Dean Kelly (Shamrock Rovers), James O’Brien (Athlone Town), Derek Prendergast (Athlone Town).
Re-signed: Stephen Best, Keith Buckley, Dan Byrne, Jason Byrne, Dean Delany, Adam Evans, Jake Hyland, Patrick Kavanagh, Roberto Lopes, Karl Moore, Anto Murphy, Derek Pender.

BOHS GO TO PRISON

Friends and directors of Bohemian Football Club went to prison this week. Senior citizens who meet regularly at Dalymount Park and members of the club’s board spent Thursday evening (4 December) with inmates and prison staff at St Patrick’s Institution.

They were served a Christmas dinner prepared by prisoners and staff and presented on tables decked with the Bohemian colours. This was a ‘thank you’ from the St Patrick’s community to Bohemians for the club’s efforts in promoting and supporting football within the prison.

Bohemians have been coaching footballers among the 150 inmates and helping them run a 6-a-sideinternal league. More recently, the Ballymun club, Shangan/Sandyhill, have also been supporting these efforts, which are co-ordinated by Bohemian PR director, Thomas Hynes.

Members of the Conway family, strongly associated with Bohemians for several generations, have been prominent in this initiative. The Conways presented a Perpetual Cup for which Bohemians play the best of St Patrick’s players every three months.

The next decider is on Sunday, 14 December, when St Patrick’s bid to retain the trophy they currently hold.

St Patrick’s governor John Kavanagh says the football project has had many positive effects in the prison. “I’m a huge believer in the capacity of sport to solve disputes and arguments. When you introduce sport into a difficult situation, differences are put aside,” Mr Kavanagh told bohemianfc.com.

As with any other prison, St Patrick’s has its factions but segregated wings come together for the football. “The effects of putting a team together to play Bohemians last for days. Any disputes are on hold and the event gives people here a sense of well-being. There’s a lot of talk about it coming up to the match.”

Mr Kavanagh and his deputy, Donncha Walsh, were delighted to welcome friends of Bohemians to St Patrick’s. “It’s nice to bring people in for something positive,” said John Kavanagh. “We don’t do anything else like this on the same scale. This is our biggest annual social event.”

Bohemian president Matt Devaney said the club was proud to be involved in this project. “This is unique, and tonight we are bringing together two parts of our community involvement, our association with St Patrick’s and our links with the senior citizens.”
