Dublin City Council release plans for €20 million Dalymount Park redevelopment

The spiritual home of Irish football is set for a major face lift.

THE REDEVELOPMENT OF Dalymount Park has moved one step closer after Dublin City Council (DCC) yesterday released the plans for a €20 million project.

The home of League of Ireland club Bohemians was purchased by DCC in a deal worth €3.8 million last June and the revamp will see the venue’s capacity increase to 10,000.

The first phase of the redevelopment will see the installation of an artificial pitch and the construction of a new 4,500 seater main stand, which is currently the Jodi Stand.

Club offices, a warm-up area, community rooms and a new ‘Hall of Fame’ museum will also be housed in the stand while the plans include new entrances to the ground from St Peter’s Road and Connaught Street.

The construction of seating behind both goals, and a second stand on the Connaught Street side, will only commence following the redevelopment of the neighbouring Phibsborough Shopping Centre.

Bohemians will be forced to play their home games at a different venue once construction commences, with a club spokesperson confirmed Shelbourne’s Tolka Park will be their home ground for the duration of the works.

The redeveloped Dalymount Park is expected to be used as a team base for Euro 2020 and to stage underage internationals.
