Hawk-Eye will be in use for this year's All-Ireland SHC quarter-finals at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

The redeveloped Cork venue will stage the Clare / Tipperary and Waterford / Wexford last-six clashes on Saturday, July 22nd and Sunday, July 23rd respectively and 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."
