Hawkeye set for Championship 2011

Updated: February 28, 2011

Kerry boss Jack O’Connor admits the use of technology in GAA matches moved a step closer following Colm Cooper’s disputed “point” at Croke Park on Saturday night.

Cooper scored six points, as Kerry narrowly lost out to the Dubs, but it was a seventh, which was signaled wide, which attracted the controversy.

The shot, towards the end of a game which Kerry lost by a single point, looked to have gone between the posts , reigniting the debate over the use of Hawk-Eye, which is set to be trialled at Croke Park next month.

O’Connor said, “It’s another notch in the bow for technology. That certainly looked like a point to me and a lot of other people on that side of the pitch.

“But look at, I don’t want to begrudge Dublin their win. We still had a couple of chances after that.”
