Watch: Comical Interpretation Of Black Card During Meath Championship
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Longwood's 3-12 to 1-13 victory over Dunderry featured a bizarre interpretation of the black card rule which saw Dunderry goalkeeper David Jennings black-carded after committing a foul in the square, only to remain on the field for the penalty.

The odd ruling sees Jennings shown a black card and begin to walk off the field, only to return and face Meath intercounty footballer Mickey Burke for the penalty.

According to the club's twitter, the black card was 'accepted' after the penalty.

A black card is issued for one of four offences and should see a player sent off the field, with a replacement allowed in the next break of play. Nevertheless, Burke converted the penalty and went on to finish with 1-3 as his club won the first round encounter.
