New York bar forced to remove 'no Irish drunks' sign after outrage from customers

A bar in New York has been forced to remove a sign reading 'No Irish drunks' after complaints from customers.

The Dock Bar & Grill in Montauk on Long Island had a sign displayed in the window with a banned list which included 'Irish drunks' along with strollers and cell phones.

After complaints were made, the owner George Watson, pasted over a replacement sign which read 'No Sensitive Drunks'.

 
 

 

Mr Watson told Irish Central: 'If you spoke about any other religion or race they would probably take offense to it; the Irish have a sense of humor.'

There were mixed reviews on the bar's Facebook page over the offending sign. Beth Wallis wrote: 'god sake people its the Docks sense of humor I think its a great sign. lol!!!!!!!!!!!!'

Helen Milne added: 'Oooooh talk about limiting your clientele:('
