According to reports in the Irish Independent, the GAA look set to abandon plans to introduce “Hawk Eye” due to the high cost involved.

A one-off outlay of €250,000 followed by annual payments of €500,000 would have been required to arrange the installation of the score-detection technology at all championship venues across the country.

A number of events over the last couple of seasons have led for calls for its introduction, the most recent of which was Limerick’s controversial winner over Wexford in last weekend’s all -Ireland SFC qualifier, however despite the increased pressure from the GPA the GAA has baulked at the costs and have shelved this for the moment.
