Dalymount regeneration closer as Govt. approve public funds draw down


The long-awaited redevelopment of Dalymount Park has moved a significant step closer. 

The Department of Finance have approved a draw-down of €918,750 worth of funds to Dublin City Council.

Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe confirmed the move on Monday. The Department's announcement comes thirteen months after the grant was awarded.

The money will be used to enable the detailed design work begin on 'The Home Of Irish Football'.

Dalymount's redevelopment has been beset by a number of delays since plans were first announced in October 2018.

The current stadium is set to be demolished, with the pitch rotated 90-degrees and a new four-sided ground to be built to house 6,000 supporters. The Phibsborough stadium would then be home to both Bohemians and Shelbourne.

The proposed development will see Bohemians move to Shels' Tolka Park ground in 2022 for two seasons, before both clubs set up shop in Dalymount from 2024.

Welcoming the news, Bohs said, "Dalymount Park ‘the home of Irish football’ will soon, once again, be the best stadium in the league and deliver enormously for ourselves, Shelbourne, and the wider community and city.

The total cost of the project stands at €34.3million, in conjunction with the redevelopment of the adjacent shopping centre.
