FARE membership

The 1895 Trust has applied for membership of the Football Against Racism in Europe Network (FARE).

If accepted, we will become part of a European alliance of football organisations dedicated to tackling discrimination in society. Benefits of the membership will include:

- Access to, and information about, events hosted by other members of the network.

- The opportunity to contribute as an organisation to the fight against racism in football and in broader society.

- The right to use the FARE logo on our website and in promotional material.

Our membership needs to be ratified by the board of FARE, we should hear within 30 days if we’ve been successful or not.

The 1895 Trust will again participate in FARE’s Football People week (formerly FARE week) – a two week period in October where attention is drawn to the positive affects of multiculturalism in football. Details are contained on the following link:

Update on the bar

The 1895 Trust will not be becoming involved in the Tolka Bar after discussions with the club’s board.

Plans are in place to ensure that the bar continues to operate, and the support of fans will of course be crucial for the success of the bar no matter what new management arrangements are in place.

The bar

The Trust Committee of Management is aware of the disappointing news that Jon Connolly will not be able to renew his lease for the bar. Jon has worked in the bar for a number of years and has done an excellent job in providing what is a valuable service to Shels fans. We wish him well in whatever future endeavour he pursues. 
Given the status of the bar is now in flux, the Trust Committee of Management are exploring options for becoming involved in the ownership and management of the bar, based on the co-operative principles of one member, one vote. We are meeting with the club’s board early next week to discuss options and will communicate with members as soon as an update is available. 
Any such initiative to become involved in the bar will require large amounts of resources, both financial and human. We would appeal to members to both renew their memberships here – – and to email us at if they could assist us in any way.
If you know of anyone outside the Trust who could assist us, please also email us at 
Many thanks. The Committee of Management of the 1895 Trust
