It is with great delight that the Bohemian Football Club and Des Kelly Interiors today announce a new four-year partnership and unveil our 2020 O’Neills home jersey. The agreement sees Des Kelly Interiors returning as main sponsors of Bohemian FC and will see their logo once again appear on the front of our jerseys where they previously appeared for a decade from 2002 to 2011.

Des Kelly is a name synonymous with Bohemians. His first involvement with the club started 23 years ago. That support has continued ever since and has been maintained since Des’ sad passing three years ago.

His children, Greg, Youlanda and Gerardo, who now run the family business, are delighted to renew that legacy and tradition.

As well as adorning the kit of our SSE Airtrcitiy League senior team, the Des Kelly Interiors logo will appear on the kits of all of our community and grassroots teams from U8s to U18s, as well as our SSE Airtricity League U19s and amputee team.

Bohemian FC Commercial and Marketing Director Daniel Lambert said: “We are truly delighted to announce this new agreement.

“The Kelly family have been colossal supporters of the club.

“It is nearly 20 years since Des Kelly part-funded our project to see the old Shed End move from terracing to become the Des Kelly Carpets Stand. Des Kelly were also our main shirt sponsor for ten seasons from 2002 until 2011.

“Crucially, this new partnership is one that covers our club as opposed to just our senior team as Des Kelly Interiors will appear on the kits of all of our grassroots teams.

“We have seen significant growth in recent years; from our charitable and community programmes, attendances at Dalymount Park, huge expansion of our youth teams – both girls and boys – and the return of European Football in 2020.

“This exciting new partnership will enable us to build on and strengthen our position as we continue to grow and expand the club at all levels.

“2020 will see us celebrate our 130th anniversary, mark our 100th season of League of Ireland Football and we will continue to progress Project Dalymount with Central Government.

“Who better to be on our shirt during these exciting times than Des Kelly Interiors? I would like to especially thank Greg, Yolanda and Gerardo Kelly for enabling this to happen.”

Des Kelly Interiors Managing Director Greg Kelly said: “I am delighted to announce this partnership today and build on something our late father Des started 23 years ago.

“It was very important to us that this was an agreement that covered the club as a whole and our sponsorship of all Bohemians youth teams – both boys and girls – the amputee team, who had lots of success in 2019, and of course Keith Long and his first team, who are heading for Europe in 2020.

“We believe this demonstrates the extent of our commitment to a club that represent much more than football. They are a force for good in the community and have progressed hugely over the past number of years.

“Des Kelly Interiors are a locally family-owned business with a rich history in this city, much the same as Bohs. The club are innovative, progressive and ambitious, values that we share together which makes this a perfect partnership.

“This is a proud day for our family and Des Kelly Interiors and we look forward to many more years of success with the club.”
