TICKETS FOR THE Liam Miller tribute match in Páirc Uí Chaoimh have gone on sale, with huge demand causing the Tickets.ie website to crash temporarily earlier this morning.

Fans who wish to buy tickets for the game on 25 September are advised to use this direct link which was set up to handle the increased volume of traffic. Tickets are also on sale from selected Super Valu and Centra stores.

Tickets for the fundraising game between the Manchester United legends and the Celtic/Republic of Ireland legends sold out within minutes when the game was originally scheduled for the 7,000-capacity Turner’s Cross.

The game was then moved to the 45,000-capacity Páirc following intense public pressure on the GAA to make the stadium available.

Miller, 36, died in February of this year following a short battle with pancreatic cancer. The former Republic of Ireland international, who also played underage football for the Rebels, is survived by his wife and three young children.
