Limerick to continue Hawk-Eye fight after latest appeal rejected

The CHC dealt Limerick another blow last night as the embarrassing Hawk-Eye controversy continues into a second week.

LIMERICK WILL FIGHT on with their Hawk-Eye appeal after their latest challenge was thrown out last night.

The county will now take their case to the Disputes Resolution Authority (DRA) as they attempt to have their controversial defeat in the All-Ireland minor hurling semi-final overturned.

Limerick challenged the result after Hawk-Eye, the GAA’s expensive score detection technology, incorrectly ruled out a point in the opening minute of their defeat against Galway. The game finished in a draw before Galway went on to win in extra-time and book their place in the final on 8 September.

The appeal was initially struck out by the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) last week who said that, under Rule 7.10 (n), they were precluded from considering an objection “submitted on grounds that a referee had incorrectly allowed or failed to allow a score.”

The Central Hearings Committee (CHC) last night upheld that decision, and with time running out, a spokesperson for the county board told that they will now lodge an application to the DRA.
