Conor Mc Gregor has moved up to number three on the greatest Irish person of all-time list. The UFC champion has moved ahead of Eammon de Valera, Bono and Jack Charlton after his victory in Las Vegas on Saturday night. The Lucan fighter was unavailable for comment but is sure to be delighted at the news as he is renowned for his pride in being Irish.
Patrick Murphy of the All Ireland Greatest Institution said that McGregor’s recent achievement warranted a move up the list. The promotion leaves the fighter just behind Brian O Driscoll and Michael Collins on the Irish great list. A further win could leave him the greatest Irish person of all time! Come on Conor you can do it!
