Bohemians to play Palestine in Dalymount Park

Bohemians and the Palestinian Football Association have confirmed they will play a friendly match in Dalymount Park.

The match will see the Bohemians women’s team playing against the Palestinian women’s team in a historic football game to be played in Dalymount Park on 15 May.

The match will mark the 76th anniversary of the 1948 Palestine War.

Bohs have been supporting Sport for Life Palestine through sales of their 2023 away shirt, which fund access to sports for children in the city of Tulkarem in the West Bank.

Bohemians president Matt Devaney said: “I would like to thank Palestinian Ambassador to Ireland Dr Jilan Wahba Abdalmajid for her efforts in enabling this fixture and look forward to welcoming her and officials from the Palestinian FA to Dalymount Park and to hopefully raise a substantial sum to assist people in a truly dire situation.”
