And Mister Green.

Bohemian FC writes:

Dalymount Park has played a unique part – chiefly in the sporting – but also in the musical and cultural history of Ireland.

The Home of Irish Football was graced in the 1970s by Thin Lizzy and the Boomtown Rats, in the 1980s by Bob Marley, Meatloaf and Black Sabbath, and in the 1990s by Faith No More, Sonic Youth, Ice Cube and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This jersey, designed by Bohemian FC in conjunction with our new kit supplier O’Neills, gives a nod to that history – and to the stadium’s special place in the hearts of both football and music fans.

In fairness.

      It’s definitely an attempt to make some cash outside of Ireland. I don’t like it but it is a good piece of marketing

    This is class.
    Football and music are the 2 corner flags of any normal society.
    Throw Bob Marley into the mix and it’s game on.

    I want one of these bad boys.

    As league of Ireland goes I’ve always been a fans Bohs. Because of the name and the history of the stadium.
    And now they’re playing really good football.
    Chant Central and Offaly Good Vibrations coming to Phibsborough.
    One Love!

      “Johnny Giles and Bob Marley were close friends right from the time they first met in London in August 1972 to the time of Marley’s untimely death in May 1981.

      While some may know Marley as a football fan, most may not know that Johnny Giles was (and remains) a huge lover of both reggae music and Jamacian culture. He is affectionately known as ‘Dub Rudie Giles’ amongst the Afro-Caribbean community of Harbourne, Birmingham where he lives today. He has been the chairpeson of the Irish-Jamacian Fraternal Society of Harborne for the last eight years”

      The full, glorious story is here…

            As recalled by CTM…

            “ I managed to unearth a fascinating story earlier this year that somehow had evaded historians for decades. In a nutshell that Bob Marley and Johnny Giles were close friends for nearly 10 years. It went viral. To our delight, Ray D’Arcy brought it up on his radio show when he interviewed Giles. A t-shirt, designed by the legendary Kev Squires, hit the shelves of Casa Rebelde soon after. To my despair, people still question its legitimacy to
            this day.

            The t-shirt in question

    Its as ridiculous as it is genius. There is big market for football shirts from different countries, once the shirt is unusual and “retro” people buy them. And anyone in that sort of thing will see Bob and mr green and buy it. There is site online that specializes in unusual football jeresys.

    Jaysus that’s manky.

    On this subject, I’m continually astonished that the same people who are outraged at the thought of alcohol companies sponsoring sports aren’t upset about bookies doing the same.
