The Widespread Outrage To The GAA’s Refusal To Host Liam Miller Tribute Match

The Irish sporting story of the week has no doubt been the refusal by the GAA to allow the 45,000 capacity Pairc Ui Chaoimh to be used for the late Liam Miller’s tribute match which is set to be hosted at Cork City’s Turner’s Cross. 

The match is already a sell-out and the move to the home of Cork GAA would see a substantial increase in attendance and ultimately, more money raised for Miller’s family.

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

This has been met with widespread condemnation from across the Irish political and sporting spectrum as you can see below.
