Dublin City Council has released the details of its plans to revamp Dalymount Park into a modern 10,000 seater stadium.

The redevelopment is expected to cost up to €20m to complete.

The plans would mean that Bohemians would have to find a new home for at least a season until the build is complete.

The revamp will begin with the laying of a new artificial pitch and the construction of a 4,500 seater main stand which will contain the club offices, a museum to reflect the history of the venue or 'hall of fame' as well as meeting rooms for youth group and community groups and a warm-up area.

The plan allows for new entrances on St Peter’s Road and Connaught Road.

Seating will be built behind both goals but the second main stand will only proceed once Phibsborough Shopping centre is redeveloped.

The likelihood of that revamp going ahead got a major boost with the sale of office block that overlooks the site recently.
