45 pints and an unlimited supply of crips and peanuts to the creator of this beauty.

Given how much of a viral phenomenon Paddy ‘Pintman’ Losty has become in Ireland in recent months, it was only a matter of time before his face adorned an Irish flag at an international sporting event.

From this Shane Long/Lionel Richie combo to this immersion-themed number to any amount of Father Ted inspired creations, Irish sports fans have shown a flair for brandishing humorous and topical flags at events and Saturday’s Champions Cup Final carried on a fine tradition.

JOE reader Alan MacUaidh tells us that he and 13 friends headed over to the clash between Saracens and Clermont having bought tickets before the semi-finals in the hope that it would be Leinster and Munster contesting the match at Murrayfield.

Despite Munster and Leinster failing to reach the decider, they said they’d make a weekend of it anyway and came up with the idea for the flag, which, Alan tells us, he’s still owed €10 for by all the lads on the trip.

It might not be enough to buy 45 pints for the group whenever they decide to go at it awful very hard agin in the future, but it’ll get plenty of crips and peanuts at the very least.

No doubt there will be a few more of these on show when the much anticipated Paddy Losty memorial pub crawl comes to Dublin next weekend.

Cheers to Alan MacUaidh for sending this our way. Got a story for JOE? Hit us up on Facebook or Twitter or mail editorial@JOE.ie.
