The GAA are to 'further consider' moving the Liam Miller tribute match to Páirc Ui Chaoimh after the GAA and the game's organising committee met today.

A joint statement was released confirming that the meeting took place and they will now consider the proposals discussed.

No details on the proposal was revealed.

"A meeting took place today between the GAA and members of the Organising Committee of the Liam Miller Tribute Match," the statement read.

"This meeting involved the GAA’s Director General and Uachtarán and the Chairperson and Secretary of the Cork County Committee.

"The Organising Committee was represented by its Chairman Michael O’Flynn, Graham Barrett and Ciarán Medlar.

"Both parties agreed that the meeting was open and constructive and the GAA will now further consider the proposal discussed at the meeting.

"There will be no further comment from any of the parties involved in these discussions at this time."

The match is due to take place at Turners Cross, with a capacity of 7000, but organisers want it moved to the 45 thousand seater GAA stadium. 

The match is already sold out.

On Saturday, the GAA tweeted: "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."

That came after they had released a statement that stressed the GAA is "prohibited in rule" from hosting games other than those under the control of the association in its stadia and grounds.

Over the last week calls intensified for the GAA to relax this rule and allow the game to be played in the 45,000 capacity Páirc this September to accommodate the huge public interest in the event.

The former Republic of Ireland soccer star died in February at the age of 36 following a battle with cancer.
