Breaking: GAA Release Statement Reaffirming Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stance

The GAA have released a statement following the news earlier in the week that they had made Páirc Ui Chaoimh unavailable for Liam Miller’s testimonial in September.

The statement outlines that the GAA cannot host games outside of the control of their association without a change at the Annual Congress which does not take place until February.

It also mentions how the Cork County Committee and Central Council “have no discretion in the matter”

The GAA then go on to mention how they took legal advice regarding the public funding used to redevelop the stadium.

The statement concludes by wishing the organisers of Liam Miller’s testimonial well and “reaffirming its offer to provide hospitality facilities at the venue free gratis to assist fundraising efforts” around September’s game.
