League of Ireland side Bohemians have unveiled their away kit for 2019, the first product of their new supply deal with O’Neills.
The shirt features a large image of Bob Marley along with Rasta-infused trim dotted hither and thither.
The reason, as explained by Bohs themselves, is that Marley played a gig at their Dalymount ground during the 1980s – a less-than-subtle nod to the stadium’s “special place in the hearts of football and music fans”.
The Boomtown Rats also played at Dalymount in the 1970s, but for some reason the club didn’t feel a large graphic of Bob Geldof would have the same impact.
Tenuous chaps. Ten-u-ous.
