Breaking: Hawk-Eye confirmed for All-Ireland hurling final

The score detection system will be in use despite some recent malfunctions in Croke Park.

Hawk-Eye has been given the green light for use in Sunday’s All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship final it has been confirmed.

The score detection system had come in for criticism following the malfunction in last weekend’s All-Ireland senior football semi-final between Derry and Galway where a legitimate score was incorrectly chalked off.

The GAA released the short statement on Friday afternoon, less than 48 hours before throw in, confirming the news

The GAA can confirm that following comprehensive testing and a full review of Hawkeye’s score detection technology in recent days, the system will be in use for Sunday’s All-Ireland hurling final meeting of Kilkenny and Limerick.

The system will also be in use tomorrow for the LGFA semi-finals at Croke Park and the Camogie Association’s quarter-finals in Thurles.

This will come as news to the Limerick camogie side who are in action in Thurles tomorrow where they face Waterford in the Camogie quarter-final.

Limerick have had issues with Hawk-Eye in Croke Park before with Barry Nash falling foul of the system in the 2013 minor hurling semi-final when he had a point incorrectly signalled wide.
