Limerick judge orders man to leave witness box over 'Ryanair-style' shirt

The judge disapproved that the man was not wearing a tie

A man has been ordered to leave the witness box in a Limerick court for wearing a 'Ryanair'-style shirt.

The Irish Examiner reports the judge openly disapproved of the man's open-necked shirt.

"We want the right kind of dress and proper decorum here. This is not a Ryanair kind of show we are running here", he said.

The man, who is an architect, was wearing a navy blazer and a sky blue shirt - but no tie.

The judge asked if he had a neck tie - and when he did not, he ordered the man away to find a tie.

He then allowed him to proceed with his evidence.
