Following a week-long saga that has been the talk of the Irish sporting world for the last few days, the organisers of the Liam Miller memorial match will meet with the GAA on Tuesday.
The GAA’s decision to block the event from taking place in Cork’s Pairc Ui Chaoimh was a decision that was met with near unanimous disapproval.
Citing a need for Congress ruling as their reasoning, the matchup was forced to be held at the much smaller venue that is Turner’s Cross – also in Cork.
Following both the GAA and the memorial’s committee making it clear that they would pursue a meeting in the near future in an attempt to sort things out, it has now emerged that both parties will come together tomorrow.
In a statement released to the press, Michael O’Flynn, who is acting as chairman of the memorial, told us the following:
23rd July 2018: Michael O’Flynn, Chairman of the Liam Miller benefit events, together with some of his committee colleagues, has confirmed that he will meet with senior GAA officials tomorrow including GAA Árd Stiúrthóir Tom Ryan and President of the GAA John Horan to discuss the location of the Liam Miller benefit game.
No further details are available at this time. It is hoped that we will be in a position to update the media following this meeting.
