“Wimbledon For Tennis Not For Dublin” Found this in an old Rovers fanzine relating to the proposed move of Wimbledon to Dublin to form the Dublin Dons in the mid 90s.
I’ve previously posted a flyer for a Resist the Dublin Dons meeting from National League United.

A flyer for a meeting of ‘National League United’ against the proposed move of Wimbledon FC to Dublin to become the Dublin Dons. The move was first proposed in 1996 and the idea of Dublin being home to a Premier League Soccer team appealed to many. Amongst those enthusiastic about the move were Eamon Dunphy, Paul McGuinness and Owen O’Callaghan.
A stadium in Neilstown was to be built and Shelbourne had agreed to let them play in Tolka Park whilst the ground was being built.
