Bohemian FC president Matt Devaney said the club was delighted to form this new relationship with IT Blanchardstown.  "We have already benefited from the use of the Institute's excellent facilities in our pre-season preparations.  We were able to host several friendlies on the all-weather pitch there when Dalymount Park could not be used without great risk to the playing surface," Mr Devaney said..
"Under the partnership with ITB our senior and under-19 teams will continue to train there and I'm sure they will draw strength from the quality of the facilities and the support of the Institute staff.  As a club with many young players and supporters it means a lot to us to have a close relationship with a higher education institution and as a club that is building its support and strengthening its community relations in north-west Dublin, ITB is a perfect fit," he continued.
