Joe Brolly And Tomás Ó Sé have urged the GAA to allow the Liam Miller tribute match take place in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
Speaking on tonight's Sunday Game Highlights, the pair addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding the inability to move the game from Turners Cross to the primary Gaelic ground in Cork. On Friday the association released a short statement confirming they would meet with organisers this coming week in the face of growing criticism.
Former Kerry footballer Tomas O'Se called it a 'no-brainer' while Brolly, who is a solicitor by trade, appealed to the GAA to uphold its community responsibility.
I think apart from anything else, the GAA must be seen as a friend. We are leaders in our community and that is how we position ourselves. I am very optimistic that John Horan, who I believe to be a man of very good intent. I think he has gotten to this a bit late but I think it will be sorted out.
