The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Shane Ross has said he would ‘love’ to see the tribute match for the late Liam Miller to take place at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, and that he told the President of the GAA that he wants “an early solution” to the current impasse.
Public pressure continued to mount on the GAA yesterday with more public figures from the world of sport, politics, and beyond calling on the organisation to allow a tribute match to the late Liam Miller take place at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
The GAA has agreed to meet the organisers of a tribute match for the late Liam Miller about hosting the event in Páirc Uí Chaoimh after the Government warned that the association’s previous refusal to grant access to the stadium could breach State aid rules.
The GAA has refused to bow to public pressure and last night insisted it would not back down on its decision to block the hosting of a charity match in aid of the family of the late Liam Miller at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
The Government is to seek an explanation from the Cork County Board, amid concerns that the decision not to allow the Liam Miller tribute match take place at Pairc Ui Chaoimh may have broken the conditions of a grant paid towards the stadium’s redevelopment.
Cork City’s remarkable unbeaten run is finally over after a second half George Poynton penalty saw Bohemians plunder all three points in last night’s entertaining SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash at Turners Cross.
