The Irish Police (Garda) reported on Thursday that investigates an “attempted attack” in one of the pubs owned by controversial mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor in Dublin. La Garda explained in a statement that those responsible tried to cause “material damage” last night at the bar “The Black Forge Inn”, located in the Drimnagh neighborhood, in the south of the Irish capital.
Local media today assure that two individuals mounted on a motorcycle threw Molotov cocktails against the facade of the pub, although the Garda has indicated that “no damage occurred”. The police have made an appeal for citizen help and witnesses to this incident, while asking for “images taken at night in the area.”
According to the digital medium “Dublin Live”, the pub was already closed at the time of the attack, but McGregor, 33, was still inside because he was participating in “a culinary event.” “The Notorious”, one of the richest athletes in the world, bought this bar last year for two million euros and spent a million more on renovations, until turning it into a Very popular destination in Dublin for both locals and tourists.
Earlier he had also bought the Marble Arch, the pub where he outraged many of his compatriots after posting a video recorded inside that showed how he punched an old man after having a verbal altercation. McGregor himself later explained that he “sent him to the canvas” because the victim refused to take a drink from the whiskey brand founded by the wrestler, “Proper Number 12”.
