Dublin have called on the LGFA to make changes to their policy on the use of HawkEye in the wake of the result of the All-Ireland final on Sunday. 

The game was won by a single point after a late penalty by Dublin's Sinead Aherne narrowed the gap to 1-07 to 1-06. However, a point from Carla Rowe that seemed to go between the posts was ruled as wide, with manager Greg McGonigle voicing his frustrations on the failure to use hawk-eye for the final.

In a statement released on Monday afternoon, the Dublin LGFA said that they wanted to congratulate Cork on winning another All-Ireland title, and that they were disappointed that the game has been shrouded in controversy as a result of an error. 

"Dublin Players, Management and Executive congratulate Cork on winning the 2016 Senior All-Ireland final," read the statement.

"We wish it to be noted that we are very disappointed that the score error could not be rectified on the field of play and we will focus our efforts to require that LGFA put processes in place so that no other team is subjected to such a situation. 

"Dublin LGFA will be making no further comment on this issue."
