    Save tolka park!

    https://savetolkapark.com/

    Tolka Park is one of Ireland’s most significant sites of sporting culture and history. Since 1924, the stadium has been enmeshed in the cultural life and sporting traditions of Dublin City. As a stadium, Tolka has a proud legacy; hosting the first floodlit football match in the Republic of Ireland in 1953, being the venue for the first televised League of Ireland game in 1997, and becoming the first all-seater stadium in domestic football in 1999.
    Tolka Park is, and always has been, an asset to Irish football and to the local community – acting as a home for Drumcondra, Home Farm, Shamrock Rovers, and since 1989, Shelbourne. It has hosted games for men and women, at every level, from local and junior football, right up to the top European competitions.

    The Save Tolka Park campaign is a coalition of local residents, football fans and activists united in opposition to the sale of the stadium to private developers. We believe, that with the right investment and planning, Tolka Park can be so much more.

    Our alternative proposal sets out our vision for a bright, new future for Tolka Park, with community facilities such as a gym, crèche, café, enterprise centre and public toilets becoming part of a reimagined stadium.
    Prob my favourite always go to away grounds. Just have an affinity for Tolka.

    PETITION To: Dublin City councillors, Catherine Martin TD (Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media), Jack Chambers TD (Minister of State - Sports and the Gaeltacht)

    Scene of our first ever Cup Final twenty years ago. There was torrential downpour in second half and all of our support base behind goals were soaked! Remember the FAI Cup final programme being ruined due to the rain and I had to reorder it from club itself!Great memories.
