GAA set to investigate Hawk-Eye system following error
The use of the device was suspended after it made an obvious gaffe today.

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.”
