Play

LARRY O’TOOLE from Bohemians FC chats with Mark Finnegan about the club’s forthcoming Anniversary Match with Ireland Legends in aid of Pieta House and the Bohemians’ long, proud history.

Bohemian FC is organising a programme of events in 2015 to mark the club’s 125th anniversary and the club is urging fans and friends to join in the celebrations.
Bohemians were founded at a meeting on 6 September 1890 and the club has the rare distinction of being a member-owned club since that time.
“We invite supporters and members of the local community to join this year’s celebrations,” said club president Matt Devaney.
“We have a proud history as a People’s Club since 1890, and we aim to strengthen our connections with the people of north Dublin in this anniversary year.”
Bohemians also have a distinguished record of playing continuously in the highest division of the national league since joining as a founding member in 1921.
