There's an extremely strong reaction to the GAA's decision on the venue for Liam Miller's tribute match

The GAA and the people have spoken.

As previously stated, the GAA released the following statement about the venue issue regarding the tribute match for Liam Miller and it has not been received well.

Their statement reads: "Only a change at Annual Congress can alter this situation. Congress takes place in February each year. The GAA has sought legal advice around funding received towards the redevelopment of Páirc Uí Chaoimh and believes it is compliant with the terms and conditions laid down in September 2016." The Association re-affirms its offer to provide hospitality facilities at the venue free gratis to assist fundraising efforts around the Liam Miller Tribute Match and wish the event organisers every success in their endeavours."

These 118 words have incited a plethora of anger and frustration towards the GAA after they officially announced that the tribute match in memory of Liam Miller - to raise funds for his wife and kids - will not be taking place in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

The match will now be played in Turner's Cross but there's no denying that the 38,000 extra tickets sold would have been welcome - not only for football fans that want to pay their respects to Miller and see a litany of great footballers - but more importantly, the financial aid that Miller's family will now be missing out on.

Since the decision was made, the reaction has been very strong with the majority condemning the GAA and their adherence to Rule 42 which states that there can be no playing of non-GAA sports in GAA stadiums - excluding Croke Park – for other codes.
