Hawk-Eye makes its point with £4.3m profit
It is a big 'Tá' from the providers of the technology that decides questionable points in top GAA matches as revenues at Hawk-Eye soared last year by 43 per cent to £17m, writes Gordon Deegan.
New accounts filed by Hawk-Eye Innovations, with its base in Basingstoke, show that the business recorded pre-tax profits of £4.3m in the 12 months to the end of March this year.
This year, Hawk-Eye extended to Semple Stadium for the first time and, according to the GAA, it was used 10 times at the Thurles venue across 12 games. For Croke Park, Hawk-Eye was used 19 times this year - 11 times for football matches and eight for hurling.
