Bohs condemn "tiny minority" for Irishtown trouble ahead of Cup Final

Bohemians have condemned the violence that flared in Irishtown ahead of Sunday's FAI Cup final. 

St. Patrick's Athletic fans drinking outside the Irishtown House were attacked by a group of approximately two dozen individuals in what's been described as a pre-planned act.

There was widespread condemnation of the incident, with Bohs themselves voicing their disgust at the actions of a "tiny minority".

Pat's would go on to win their fourth FAI Cup, beating Bohs on penalties after the sides finished level at 1-1 afte extra-time.

A Bohemian FC spokesperson said: "37,126 attended Sunday's game in what was a record-breaking attendance for an FAI Cup final at the Aviva Stadium, and the highest attendance for any FAI Cup final since 1945. This represents a remarkable step forward for Irish football.

"Bohemians had a crowd of circa 18,000 behind our team. This was an unprecedented figure for our club, and both sets of supporters contributed to one of the most electric atmospheres seen at any domestic fixture.

"It is therefore all the more deeply regrettable that the deplorable actions of a tiny minority would take away from that, and tarnish such an occasion between two clubs who have had such an excellent relationship for many years.

"We condemn the behaviour of this minority unconditionally. Such behaviour has no place in our club. We will be reviewing any footage received, and will ban anyone identifiable.

"As a 100% fan-owned club, our volunteers have worked tirelessly to be a force of good in our communities on many fronts. We will not allow the actions of this minority detract from that continued aim.”
