Having acquired ownership of Dalymount Park in 2015, the Dublin City Council have now revealed their plans for an impressive redevelopment of the ground.
Tweeted out by the Football Association of Ireland this evening, images of the imagined end product have certainly caught the eye.
Catering to both Bohemians and Shelbourne, it is the intention of the DCC to ensure the new Dalymount Park also develops "a strong community element." This will mean the inclusion of "community facilities, including a library, flexible community space and meeting rooms plus concourse space at ground level which can be utilised for community activities and events on non-matchdays."

Speaking in light of the emergence of these plans, FAI Chief Executive John Delaney spoke of the positive impact this development will have for the local Phibsborough area.
“This project has been been in the pipeline for a long time, and we are delighted to be working with DCC to give north Dublin a stadium worthy of the area.
“The fact the Bohemians and Shelbourne will be the anchor tenants of the stadium, will add to the storied history of Dalymount Park.
“Phibsborough has hosted some historic matches through the decades, and I’m delighted we will see plenty more matches there for decades to come.”
Of the new stadium itself, it is the intention of the developers to deliver a 6,000 seat UEFA Category 3 stadium.
The FAI also released this conceptual video outlining the inner-workings of the new stadium, and what you can expect to see at Dalymount Park.
