The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has suspended goal-line technology Hawk-Eye, following a wrong decision it made during a hurling game yesterday.
Hawk-Eye malfunctioned at an All-Ireland minor hurling semi-final between Limerick and Galway. It incorrectly ruled a Limerick ‘miss’ when its own review clearly showed that a point should have been awarded, in a game which was then taken to extra time that Galway later won.
The system was not used for the remainder of the game and in the following senior game between Limerick and Clare yesterday. An investigation into the incident has been launched today.
Hawk-Eye was installed at Croke Park for a reported €200,000, and it started a two-year trial period for the sport in June this year. It is expected to be back in use for Sunday’s fixtures.
