FROM ODHRÁN CRUMLEY
Hawk-eye will be used in Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Cork for this year’s All Ireland Quarter Finals between Clare versus Tipperary and Waterford versus Wexford.
Both clashes will not be held as a double header as has been tradition in recent times. Due to the large crowds expected which usually accompany the four counties, the CCCC have been forced to play both games over different days on the weekend of July 23rd.
Head of games administration, Feargal McGill, head of games administration, has confirmed that the score detection system will be fully operational for these two historic games.
“For all intents and purposes it’s the same as what’s in Thurles,” he told RTE. “It’s not permanent cameras in Pairc Ui Chaoimh at the moment, it’s temporary. In Croke Park and Thurles, we use Hawk-Eye’s cameras but in Cork it’s not their cameras, but it will be the Hawk-Eye system.”
