Thurles To Get Hawk-Eye Technology

HurlingThe Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) intend to extend their new Hawk-Eye Technology to Semple Stadium in the not too distant future.

Despite the major error which incorrectly adjudged Barry Nash’s point as having gone wide in Limerick’s All-Ireland MHC semi-final defeat to Galway last month, Mr Páraic Duffy Director General of the Association, has wholeheartedly backed this new technology and believes it will serve the GAA well into the future.

Mr Duffy forecasts that it will be introduced to Semple Stadium here in Thurles by possibly 2014, because Thurles is predominantly a hurling venue.

Hawk-Eye’s value was very obvious in the recent All-Ireland minor SFC semi-final, when it correctly overruled an umpire’s decision that a shot had gone wide.
