Seen on the roof of a hotel in Lidcome, Sydney, on a green field a yellow woman-shaped harp, a yellow southern cross in the upper hoist.

The Irish Australian flag you saw is one of several "heritage" flags created by John Vaughan of Australiana Flags. I have a copy of the flag in my collection along with the Australian-Scottish flag which consists of a St Andrews Cross with a shield of the Scottish Lion and a Southern Cross. The Irish-Australian flag was first raised at a ceremony at Vinegar Hill Woolshed on 10 March 1988 to commemorate 200 years of Irish settlement in Australia.
