An Irishman in Perth improvised when he wasn't allowed into a pub because of his flip flops

Great lengths.

THE OFFICIAL START of the summer in Perth, Australia is December 1st – so it’s safe to say that the beach weather is in full swing.

And so it was on Sunday, when Irishman Ruaírí Brannigan arrived up for a few drinks in An Sibin Irish Pub in the city centre.

The only problem was, the pub doesn’t allow people in who are wearing flip flops – so he had to improvise:

“When you realllllyy wanna get into the pub but you have thongs [flip flops] on…. so you buy the only shoes left in the shop…”

Ruaírí tells how he got his hands on them:

It was about 10 on Sunday night – a small supermarket beside the bar and it was the only shoes they had left.

Posted on the An Sibin Irish Pub Facebook page yesterday, and spotted by, it’s true what they say: some heroes don’t wear capes.
