Bohemians have unveiled a new jersey for this year’s FAI Cup, and it’s the Dublin Bus seat pattern.
The shirt will cost seventy euros for adults and thirty-five for kids, with ten per cent of all sales donated to charity partners LGBT Ireland and ShoutOut. The Dublin Bus seat pattern, designed by Ardee Coaches Trim, has been found across the transport service’s fleet of vehicles since 1998.

The club’s new kit was launched this morning at the Phoenix Park, not far from where they were initially founded in 1890.
Dublin Bus CEO Ray Coyne said of the new kit: “As a lifelong football fan and regular attendee to the terraces of Dalymount Park with my family, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this announcement here today. Dublin Bus has strongly supported Dublin’s Originals for many years. Not only do its players keep us entertained week in and week out on the pitch, it is a club at the heart of its community, just as Dublin Bus is.”
Bohemian FC Chief Operating Officer Dan Lambert said: “We are delighted to unveil this FAI Cup jersey today in conjunction with club partner Dublin Bus and featuring main club partner Des Kelly. All three bodies are Dublin institutions, and the iconic seat design that adorns buses across the city is part of the fabric of many people’s lives as they move through the capital.”
