Redditor liamog85 spotted the gaffe yesterday while passing the pub on Jervis Street –  a picture on their Facebook page from March shows that usually, they have the Irish flag hanging the right way round.

Fortunately, the post was spotted by another user who said TP Smith’s was the ‘family pub’, and reassured everyone that it’d be fixed ASAP:

Great seeing the family pub on Reddit ha, albeit for the wrong reasons. If you happen to stroll by it tomorrow, this will be rectified.

Close one.

Thank you to liamog85 for the pic
