Increased capacity is seen as crucial for the growth of the club.

Almost 13 years on from the initial thoughts to redevelop one of the country’s most historic stadiums, Dalymount Park’s plan has been given the go ahead by  Dublin City council.

A new four sided stadium with a capacity of over 8 thousand spectators in the coming years.

Daniel Lambert is the COO at Bohs and he says it’s vital that the new stadium still feels like home to all of the fans

“It’s really hard to do, because big building firms just want to get in and get out,” he said.

“We’re keen for it to have a very big sense of the old Dalymount, and can we factor in some of the old turnstiles, some of the old crush barriers for bike parking.

“Bring in elements from the graffiti and the murals… we don’t want it to feel like a modern stadium but it will be.

“This will enable us to operate at a totally different level and that will benefit al parts of the club, the men’s team, the women’s team, the community work, the academy and youth teams.”

The club are keen on the full redevelopment of the stadium to be completed by the 2027 season
