Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Unless you are Queen Elizabeth II or her family. The Players Lounge in Dublin has draped a forty foot banner across the front of the pub indicating that certain royals are unwelcome there.
The Queen is scheduled to make her first visit to Ireland in May.
Police advised the proprietor of the pub, Mr. John Stokes, to take down the banner. He refused and a judge then ordered him to remove the offensive signage. He then complied rather than face legal sanctions. Full story here.
