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.

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