Fermanagh lost out to Mayo in the All-Ireland Football Championship qualifiers yesterday afternoon, and although the Westerners fought back bravely to secure victory, the end of the game was undoubtedly controversial.
Aidan O’Shea was awarded a questionable penalty when pushed in the back.
Fermanagh manager Pete McGrath, speaking to RTÉ after the match, reviewed the incident and was not one bit impressed with the decision.
It ultimately did not make a difference as Mayo ran out four point winners, but it does leave a sour taste in the mouth for Fermanagh fans.
These images give another angle on the awarding of the penalty.
Mayo now march on to the next round of the qualifiers.
It was the opinion of Pundit Arena’s Seán Cremin on The 16th Man Podcast that it would do Mayo no harm to take the scenic route this year, as they can enter the All-Ireland quarter-finals with a few scraps under their belt. The fact that they won a dogfight yesterday may mean that they will be more battle-hardened should they reach Croke Park this year.
