BOHEMIANS v DUNDALK (Dalymount Park, Saturday October 12th, 7.45pm)

Bohemians face Dundalk on a weekend that could settle the battle for survival in the Premier Division.

Following Shelbourne’s defeat on Thursday, Bohemians no longer face possible automatic relegation. If their result on Saturday equals or betters Bray’s on Sunday they avoid having to play-off.

For assistant manager Owen Heary, confirmation of his team’s position in the top flight would represent a notable success. “Maybe there should be stay-up medals,” he joked.


“When we went to the bottom of the table and we were playing Rovers, Pat’s and Sligo, people said we wouldn’t get a point from those games. But we got four points from nine. That gave the players the belief they needed.”

Saturday’s match will test their mettle once again. “Dundalk are a tough team and, after what’s happened in the past week, they’ll want to get a good result,” said Heary.

“People say they have over-achieved but I don’t think they have. They have a good manager, and good players and they have lads who have won medals or played over in England or Scotland, and with experience. But our players know that a win on Saturday will ensure we stay up.”

Dundalk have provided stiff opposition this season, winning both league games against Bohemians and keeping a clean sheet home and away.

Already, Heary is looking to what this squad can do next season if it can be kept together. With the addition of “a couple more experienced players and a couple more in certain positions”, Bohemians could next year be “fighting at the better end of the table, for European places”, Heary believes. “We need to let lads know they’re wanted and do our business early,” he added.

The contribution of the re-signed Anto Murphy – along with those of Delany, Pender, Mulcahy and four-season ‘veteran’ Ryan McEvoy – has shown the value of mixing experience with youth.

But Bohemians must prepare for Friday without Murphy. Having recovered from a hamstring injury, he is being treated for an ulcer.

Heary is pleased with how Neil Yadolahi has stepped up to take Murphy’s place. “He was thrown in at the deep end and he has done very well. He was unlucky in Limerick, when he had a good header and the keeper pulled off a great save.”

Shane Murray’s knee injury from last week’s match against Limerick has turned out not to be as serious as first thought but he remains out for Friday. However, Stephen Traynor, who missed the Limerick game with a quad injury, is back.



The fans’ poll to decide the 2014 Bohemians home kit has now closed. Any vote received after 12am will not be counted.

Thank you to all of you who cast your vote – the poll proved very popular among supporters.

We hope to be in a position to reveal the winning design on Friday when club’s online store will also start taking pre-sale orders for the new jersey.

Can you handle the suspense?

Everyone at Bohs would like to thank Sid at Harbinger for all his hard work on this project. For more examples of Harbinger’s work, check out

There is a shortlist of four jerseys to choose from, each shirt design is presented twice with a different shorts and socks option.

You have until Tuesday night (midnight) to cast your vote. So vote early and start canvassing your fellow Gypsies to do the same.

We aim to have the fans’ chosen design on sale in time for the Christmas market.



Following on from successful Dalymount clean-up days in July and August, Bohemians are once again calling on fans to lend a hand this Saturday (October 5th) from 10am on.

As well as usual cleaning and power-washing of the Jodi Stand and Des Kelly Carpets Stand, areas marked for special attention this weekend are painting of Tramway End railings, repair of broken seats/pitch boards/signage and installation of rockwool in the Jodi Stand.

There will be refreshments laid on for volunteers. The more volunteers, the less time it will take. So once again it’s time to dust down your paint brushes, sweeping brushes and trowels!


The upkeep of our stadium is crucial in maintaining a professional image and attracting new supporters and maximizing earning potential from friendly games.

We are extremely grateful to the support and hard work undertaken by supporters over the course of the two previous Dalymount clean-up days.

We continue to rely on the help and goodwill of our members and supporters, so if you can spare some time, we hope to see you this Saturday.

If you are unable to attend, but would like to help in the upkeep of Dalymount Park, please email If you would like to help in any other area of the club, please email
