Description

Dalymount Park is the permanent home of Dublin’s Bohemian F.C. The first football game took place in 1901 between Shelbourne and Bohs. In 1924, there was the first international match between Ireland and the USA. The highest attendance at the stadium is 48,000, which took place in 1957, during the football match between Irish and England football teams. In 1962, there were floodlights installed at the ground. In the 1980s, Landsdowne Road became the main venue for Irish football, so just a few international matches have been played since that time at Dalymount Park.

In 1985, certain doubts regarding the safety of the stadium arose. This led to restricting the capacity of the stadium to 22,000. The last Irish international at the ground was played in 1990 against Morocco.

The ground has been redeveloped, and now the old shed end comes with the new seats installed. There has also been a new ‘Jodi’ stand installed, which has the capacity of 3,000.
