GAA confirm no Hawkeye in use for Dublin-Kerry game tomorrow
There was controversy over the score detection technology in today’s semi-final.

THE GAA HAVE confirmed that Hawkeye will not be in use for tomorrow’s Dublin-Kerry game in Croke Park.

The All-Ireland senior football semi-final is part of a double-header of action, Kilkenny facing New York in the opening game in the All-Ireland junior decider.

The score detection technology sparked controversy in today’s game involving Galway and Derry, where a shot before half-time from Shane Walsh was adjudged to be wide despite TV replays showing it was between the posts. The error was rectified at half-time and the score was registered.

The technology was not in use for the second half as Galway ran out 2-8 to 1-6 winners and the GAA have this evening confirmed it will not be used tomorrow, with a full review set to take place this week.

The statement in full reads:

“The GAA can confirm that score detection technology will not be in use for tomorrow’s two games at Croke Park.

“A full review of the technology will take place in the coming week.”
