Liam Miller tribute events launched

Wednesday, 18th July, 2018 12:10pm

A benefit match and dinner in memory of the late Liam Miller have been launched today.

Lord Mayor Cllr Mick Finn formally launched the Liam Miller Benefit Match at Cork City Hall this morning, with names such as Roy Keane in attendance.

The match will take place at Turners Cross at 3pm on Tuesday 25 September and will go on sale at 10am this Friday 20 July on Tickets are priced at €50 and the match will be followed by a Black Tie Gala Dinner and panel discussion at City Hall at 7.15pm. Former team-mates of Liam Miller from his time with Manchester United, Glasgow Celtic and the Republic of Ireland will line out for the two special tribute events.

Tables of 12 at the Black Tie Gala Dinner are priced at €4,000, with tables now all but sold out after considerable corporate demand.

“The Miller family suffered a devastating loss with Liam’s tragic passing earlier this year, and it is fantastic to see how the football community has responded so magnificently to this tribute match” Cllr Finn said at the launch today.

“I am sure that the people of Cork, and indeed the country, will also come out in force to support this great initiative. It promises to be a unique sporting event with so many greats of football set to take part,” he said.

A number of people who knew and worked with Liam have helped to organise the match including Sir Alex Ferguson, Roy Keane and Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward, Cork City FC manager John Caulfield, veteran Ireland player John Giles and family neighbour and friend Michael O’Flynn.
