THE GAA HAS said it will launch an investigation into the Hawk-Eye system after it failed to register an obvious point in today’s All-Ireland minor semi-final between Limerick and Galway.
The use of the device had to be subsequently suspended for today’s All-Ireland senior semi-final between Clare and Limerick as a result of the failing.
The association added that it expected the system to be fully working again for next week’s matches at Croke Park, with a statement reading:
“Following an inconsistency in the generation of a graphic by Hawk-Eye during today’s minor hurling semi-final, the decision was taken to suspend use of the score detection system for the senior game.
“A full review of the technology, in conjunction with Hawk-Eye, commenced this evening and its finding will be examined by the GAA tomorrow.
“It is expected that Hawk-Eye will be in full working order for next Sunday’s minor and senior football semi-finals.”
