Irish Bohemian FC launch Bob Marley tribute shirt
Bohemian FC, based in North Dublin have caused a stir with the release of their new 2022 away jersey which pays tribute to one of the most iconic musicians of the 21st century and pioneer of reggae in Bob Marley.
Opening presales: Our 2022 outdoor kit, testimony to Bob Marley’s last outdoor concert, at Dalymount Park 1980.
Shirt sales will also raise funds to bring football and music to asylum seekers in Ireland.
“Unity is the key to the world, and racial harmony”

The shirt was designed in collaboration with the Marley Estate and the Bravado group that handles Marley goods issues. The shirt comments on the Jamaican artist’s last outdoor show which took place at Bohs’ Dalymount Park Stadium on July 6 (1980).
The Irish top flight originally planned to release the shirt in 2018 but image rights issues have hampered the initiative. 10% of all profits from shirt sales will go to Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland (MASI) with the money earmarked to purchase musical instruments and football equipment to deliver to asylum centers across the country.
