Bohemian FC have unveiled their latest in a line of music, band themed kit with their  Thin Lizzy 2024 away jersey.

The jersey pays tribute to the band’s 1977 gig in Dalymount park, where the band played a rock festival which also featured Radiators From Space, Fairport Convention, Boomtown Rats, and Garaham Parker and the Rumour.

 It took place the day after Phil Lynott’s 28th birthday.

The jersey features design by Jim Fitzpatrick from the Black Rose album in its trim and sleeve design and a quote from The Boys Are Back in Town on the neck, and an embroidered hem tag of an original concert poster on the lower front

Ten percent of the profits from the shirt will be used by Bohemian Football Club to help bring music to disadvantaged and socially isolated children across Dublin through club partners Music Generation Dublin City.

The club recently put out Bob Marley, Aslan and Fontaines D.C jerseys along with a strong social justice identity through its Refugees Welcome jersey.

The shirt is available for pre-order now at shop-bohemianfc.com.

“We are delighted to unveil this jersey today following lots of work on the idea. The Lizzy concert at Dalymount has always been mentioned in any lists of the greatest Irish gigs of all time. For Dalymount Park, it was the first concert held at our famous venue, setting the path for the many famous gigs to follow through the 80s and 90s. Thin Lizzy are one of the greatest Irish bands of all time, and for many Phil the greatest Dubliner, to pay tribute to them and the gig on the shirt is brilliant. A very special thanks to Jim Fitzpatrick for his permission to use the Black Rose throughout, and to Des Kelly Interiors for their continued willingness to work with us on unique shirts.”

Daniel Lambert, Bohemian FC, COO

“We are very excited to launch this special shirt with Bohemian FC, celebrating one of Ireland’s greatest ever gigs by one of Ireland’s greatest ever bands. It is particularly nice to have Jim Fitzpatrick’s iconic black rose design used in the pattern. We hope that the funds it will generate for Music Generation Dublin City will inspire young kids on the same streets that Phil once walked to pursue their love of music.”

Dave T, representative of Thin Lizzy

“Music Generation Dublin City are proud and excited to partner with Bohemians FC on this fantastic project, and create further access to music education for children and young people in Dublin. The opportunity to create a fund to support young bands and acts will ensure we get close to our goal of making sure that everyone in our community, whatever their background, gets access to music tuition… and just maybe we can help develop the next Thin Lizzy!”
