Here's all you need to know about the Liam Miller tribute match

The full details of the Liam Miller tribute match have been released.

The game is scheduled for kick-off at 3pm on Tuesday, September 25 in Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh, but that is not the only event taking place on the day.

Gates will open at 12.45pm and musical entertainment will begin at 1.45pm.

The players taking part in the testimonial will begin warming up at 2.20pm and will take to the pitch to meet President Michael D Higgins ten minutes before kick-off.

At halftime, there will be a number of GAA games, with the day's events due to end at approximately 5pm.

Gardai are urging match-goers to avail of public transport or to walk to the Páirc as there will be no parking around the stadium.

Speaking at Anglesea Street garda station today, Inspector Finbarr O Sullivan said: "We are delighted to be one of the many agencies involved in this tribute match for Liam Miller.

"I would appeal to anyone going to match to use the Bus Eireann shuttle buses from Lapps Quay or walk to Páirc Uí Chaoimh as there is no parking around the stadium and there will be a tow away operation in place.

"The match is due to finish up at 5pm so we know there is going to be traffic delays in Cork City so we would ask that motorists and pedestrians be patient and follow the direction of gardaí and stewards. We have a full traffic management in place for the event which can be viewed on the garda website.

[quote]As always, when you are coming to and from the stadium I would ask that patrons respect the local residents and businesses. This is an event for all the family and consuming alcohol out in public will not be tolerated. Most of all, enjoy the match and stay safe.[/quote]
