 Observer Penalty shoot-outs? Blame my great-grandfather
The penalty kick, of course, is the kind of penalty that only a goalkeeper could have invented, a supreme moment of drama and self-sacrifice that places the goalkeeper, generally a bystander, at the centre of the stage.
From his goalmouth vantage-point on the muddy, low-lying Milford village football pitch, during the 1880s, William McCrum slowly developed the idea of the penalty kick as a way of curbing excesses on the field.
In 1890, having developed the idea of the penalty kick in local Milford games, Master Willie persuaded the Irish Football Association (IFA) to submit his idea to the next meeting of the International Football Board (IFB).

 Field of Play Law 1
Areas around the goal where the goalkeeper usually stands are prone to be harder or wetter – or muddier – or bumpier than other areas of the field of play.
Generally, when the ball is released at the edge of the penalty area, it looks like the goalkeeper still has his hand on the ball when it is outside of the penalty area; but in nearly all cases, the ball is released whilst it is still just inside of the penalty area.
If the goalkeeper is standing inside his penalty area, stretches his arms outside of the penalty area, and catches the ball (which remains outside of the area), then this is hand ball, and a direct free kick should be awarded.

 Penalty kick (football) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A penalty kick is a type of free kick in association football (soccer), taken from twelve yards (eleven metres) out from goal and with only the goalkeeper of the defending team between the penalty taker and the goal.
The goalkeeper must remain between the goalposts on the goal-line facing the ball until the ball is kicked, but may move from side to side along the goal-line.
A penalty kick may be awarded when a defending player commits a foul punishable by a direct free kick (a so-called penal foul) against an opponent, within their own penalty area (commonly known as "the box", "18 yard box" or "16 metre box").

 Irish Football Youth League
Irish football, or Gaelic football, (and the variant called Hurling), is played by women or men in teams of fifteen (goalkeeper, 6 backs, 2 midfielders, 6 forwards), on a field approximately 90M X 50M, with H-goal posts at each end.
In football, if the ball crosses the endline, and goes between the defenders' goalposts, either above or below the crossbar, a score is given to the attacking team, and the kickout is taken from the 21 yard line.
The football itself is similar to a soccer ball.
