This is how Northern Irish man got into Australian pub after being turned away for wearing flip-flops

What do you do if the bar won't let you in because of your footwear?

Well for one Co Down man - he bought the first appropriate pair he could find.

Ruairi Brannigan headed to An Sibin Irish Pub in Perth, Australia for a couple of drinks on Sunday.

But he was wearing flip flops - which were against the pub's dress code.

However, undeterred, Ruairi went to a nearby shop and picked up the only shoes he could find in his size - which happened to be a pair of women's pumps.

The post of Ruairi standing at the bar was shared on the pub's Facebook page and wracked up hundreds of likes and comments.

One post, which appears to be from Ruairi's mum said: "Oh my sweet mother of god what has Australia done to u Ruaírí I think it is time you come home to your mummy. But seriously I like them shoes  so make sure you take them home for me."

Another said: "Dedicated to the sesh."
