AN Antrim man has become an unwitting internet superstar after footage of his 'colourful' 50th birthday party in Australia went viral.
Herbie Mailey, a well known figure in local Loyal Order and Masonic circles, emigrated 'down under' several years ago but retains his many cultural interests.
To celebrate his big day, family and friends presented him with a spectacular cake, decorated with a Union flag, the Red Hand of Ulster and a Masonic symbol.
However, what Herbie did not realise was that the sponge inside the cake was green, white and orange, the colours of the Irish tricolour.
Since being put on Facebook, the video has been viewed over one and a half million times and has been shared by scores of people from all over the world.
