Limerick loses appeal for Hawk-Eye mistake

The Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) has rejected Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) team Limerick’s appeal against a Hawk-Eye error that potentially cost them a game last week through disallowed points.

GAA temporarily suspended the goal-line technology following the All-Ireland minor hurling semi-final. Hawk-Eye 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 opponents Galway later won by three points.

The Limerick county board later lodged an appeal with the CCCC, however, a statement from the body read: “No objection or counter-objection may be submitted on grounds that a referee had incorrectly allowed or failed to allow a score.”

Limerick now reportedly plans to take its case to the Central Appeals Committee (CAC) and to the Disputes Resolution Authority (DRA) should it fail to win a CAC appeal.
