Fermanagh scored one of the most bizarre goals you'll see against Dublin

How on earth was this given?

FERMANAGH GAVE A fine account of themselves in this afternoon’s All-Ireland senior football championship quarter-final against Dublin — losing out 2-23 to 2-15 at Croke Park.

However, referee Padraig O’Sullivan and his umpires made a truly awful decision by awarding their first goal, which arrived 63 minutes in.

Dublin goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton collected the ball under his crossbar, before Fermanagh’s Sean Quigley came charging in to bundle him over the line illegally.

“I’m not quite sure what happened with it,” said Fermanagh manager Peter McGrath afterwards. “I think he challenged Stephen Cluxton and he went behind the line with the ball.”

That’s putting it lightly.
