The PFAI, along with their official fundraising partner, have brought 12 players together – one from each Premier Division club – to make a calendar in order to raise funds for Drogheda United striker Gary O’ Neill in his battle against testicular cancer.

The calendar features our Bohemians starlet Luke Byrne as well as Daire Doyle (Bray Wanderers),  Gearoid Morrissey (Cork City), Barry Molloy (Derry City), Paul O’Conor (Drogheda Utd), Peter Cherrie (Dundalk), Stephen Folan (Limerick),  Graham Gartland (Shelbourne), Raffaele Cretaro (Sligo Rovers), James Chambers (Shamrock Rovers), Jake Kelly (St Pat’s) and Mick Leahy (UCD).

The project was funded by Ford and a percentage of all profits will also go to the Irish Cancer Society.

The calendar will be available from HMV. It will go on sale tomorrow (Friday November 1st).

They will also be available  at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday (November 3rd) during the day of the FAI Ford Cup final.

The supporters behind the recent successful Dalymount Fight Night are releasing another fundraising t-shirt.

Their previous efforts have proved very popular among supporters and the latest design (pictured) is a perfect gift for any Bohs fan.

The foosball-style design with a grey background features three of the most iconic Bohs jerseys of all time – the white top with red star of the 1890s, the Elverys shirt worn in the 1984 win over Glasgow Rangers and the Adecco kit worn when the club clinched the double in 2001.

Priced at €20, demand is expected to be high. Email to place your order.

All funds raised are split between the club and the Gypsies Supporters’ Trust.



BOHEMIANS LEGENDS XI v SHELBOURNE LEGENDS XI (Sunday November 17th, Dalymount Park, 3pm)

Over 100 league medals’ worth of talent will be on display at Dalymount Park on Sunday November 17th when a Bohemians Legends XI host a Shelbourne Legends XI in a tribute game in honour of Owen Heary, who last week played his final game of a glittering 21-season League of Ireland career.

Heary spent nine seasons at Tolka Park before making the short trip to Dalymount Park in January 2007 to sign for the club he supported as a boy.

His haul of seven league titles – five with Shels and two with Bohs – is a record he jointly holds with Johnny Matthews. He also won the FAI Cup twice, the Setanta Sports Cup and the EA Sports Cup.

Hibs manager Pat Fenlon – also a trophy-laden legend at both clubs – will take charge of the Bohs XI, while Dermot Keely – a 10-time league winner as a player and manager – will take the Shels hotseat again for one game only.


Guest players confirmed so far include Fran and Elmo from Love/Hate (Peter Coonan and Laurence Kinlan).

Admission: Adults €10 Adults; OAPs and U-12s €5.

Bohemians v Derry City - Ford FAI Cup Final 2008

“We have to go up there and do the business”

DROGHEDA UNITED v BOHEMIANS (Friday October 25th, Hunky Dorys Park, 7.45pm)

Bohemians go into their final game of the season needing at least a draw to guarantee survival in the Premier Division.

With a two-point lead over the teams immediately below them in the league, Bohemians would also avoid the relegation play-off if those two teams fail to win their respective matches.

“We have to look after our own game first. We have to go up there and do the business,” said Bohemian manager Bobby Browne.


“We have to look to get the point we need. Football can kick you when you’re down and the other games could go against us.”

Bohemians come to this crunch game following defeat last week to Bray Wanderers in a game that Browne considers neither side deserved to win.

“It was a very poor game from the start. It looked like both teams were willing to settle for a draw. It took only one lapse of concentration and the ball was in the net. Too many of our players were down a gear. We have to rectify that this week.”

In the league this season Bohemians and Drogheda United have played out two draws. Last May in Hunky Dorys Park they shared four goals and six yellow cards. In July, in Dalymount Park, they drew 1-1 and again had three yellow cards each.

Drogheda United put Bohs out of the FAI Cup last May on their way to next month’s final.

Browne and assistant Owen Heary hope to have Anto Murphy (recovered from ulcer) and Dave Mulcahy (recovered from ankle injury) available for Friday. The two have been training but are subject to late fitness tests.

“It would be a big plus to have them both on the park in terms of experience and know-how and encouraging the young players,” said Browne.

With or without these two experienced players Bohemians may make some changes to their line-up, aiming to inject greater urgency into their play.

“We have a lot of players in the squad who have not had the experience of a relegation battle. We have to give them as much support as possible,” said Browne. “But when they cross that white line they have to motivate themselves.

“We have had great support over the last weeks. The players now have to go out and give a performance.”
