The ongoing saga of Liam Miller’s testimonial match took a new twist today when the GAA released a statement outlining their intentions to meet with the organisers of the match to “discuss issues around the game”.
The GAA have been criticised for all week on their stance but the statement seems to be an indication that they may compromise on Páirc Uí Chaoimh being used as the venue for the game rather than Cork City FC’s Turners Cross.
Here is the statement from the GAA which was released earlier today.
“The GAA President and Ard Stiúrthóir, along with representatives of the Cork Committee, are to seek a meeting with the organising committee of the Liam Miller Tribute Match to discuss issues around the game.”
Now, the chairman of the organising committee, Michael O’Flynn, has commented on the association’s comments.
“We are very pleased with the statement from the GAA, and are very keen to meet with them and discuss the matter,” O’Flynn said.
The meeting is expected to take place early next week.
