Galway minor hurling manager Mattie Murphy does not expect Limerick to be looking for revenge over the Hawk-Eye controversy last year when they clash again in the All-Ireland MHC semi-final on Sunday.

Murphy said that last year’s Hawk-Eye malfunction will have no impact ahead on Sunday’s meeting at Croke Park.

The same two sides met in the semi-finals last season and a human error caused Hawk-Eye to rule a legitimate score from Limerick’s Barry Cash as a wide.

Galway emerged three-point winners, but the Treaty men felt the incident had a massive effect on their challenge.

After the gaffe last year, Limerick manager Jerry Wallace said his players were “traumatised” by events.

They returned to training after their exit in a bid to be reinstated and even received an apology from GAA president Liam O’Neill.

But according to Murphy last year’s incident will have no impact on Sunday’s game and it should be consigned to the past.

“If you dwell on history that’s where you will stay,” said Murphy, who has managed Galway to six All-Ireland titles at the grade.

“It’s an occasion in itself. We’ll be going out to enjoy that occasion and we won’t have any hang-ups on what happened or what didn’t happen last year.
