Irish guy hits headlines for sneaking into Australian nightclub

An Irish man has been fined after he got stuck in a vent trying to gain access to a nightclub in Sydney.

After being thrown out of the premises twice, he then attempted to gain entry to the club by climbing through a vent in the roof.

However the 18-year-old, who is in Australia on a one-year working holiday visa, had to be rescued by emergency services when he became stuck in the roof vent.

The man was stuck in the vent for over 90 minutes before people in the club became aware of his cries for help after becoming stuck. 

The teenager was ordered to pay $1,700 on top of his $900 fine, to cover damage to the building's glass door and roof.
