Following yesterday’s statement by Bohemians football club on their issues with Tesco’s right of way, Shelbourne have tonight issued their own statement where they echo the views of their Dublin neighbours.
Here is Shelbourne’s statement in full;
Shelbourne FC has been advised by Dublin City Council that the planned redevelopment of Dalymount Park will go ahead irrespective of whether the redevelopment of Phibsborough Shopping Centre proceeds. Ideally both redevelopments would proceed in parallel and deliver a major rejuvenation to the Phibsborough area as well as to Dalymount Park.
We endorse the views expressed over the past few days by our colleagues in Bohemian FC, asking that the various parties involved in the redevelopment of the Shopping Centre reach an agreement which will allow the original redevelopment plan to proceed.
Both Shelbourne FC and Bohemian FC remain determined to see through the redevelopment of Dalymount Park into a state of the art football stadium which encompasses civic and community facilities that will be at the disposal of all who reside in the Phibsborough area.
