GAA president Christy Cooney has confirmed Hawk-Eye technology will be trialed by the GAA before the end of the Allianz League campaigns. The technology, which is already used in other sports such as cricket and tennis, could instantly decide disputed scores during games
courtesy of strategically placed cameras behind the goalposts.
The president confirmed it would be tested this spring, with April 2 penciled in when Dublin face a hurling-football double-header against Kilkenny and Down.
However, the Mayo/Dublin league meeting on March 20 in Croke Park is expected to be the first time the new technology will be tested.
"We would hope to trial it in a game in Croke Park in the near future. We are looking at the Dublin games at the moment.
"We are testing it to see how it works. We will have a meeting in May to analyse that and discuss the whole costing and feasibility of having it at all of our grounds.
"It won't be in use in this year but it is something for the future and something we will look very seriously at. It has to be right and to be effective and we have to be able to do it at all of our county games," said Mr. Cooney.
