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.
