Conor McGregor’s pub targeted in alleged ‘petrol bomb attack’
Irish Police are investigating an alleged attack on UFC superstar Conor McGregor’s pub, which he bought two years ago for €2 million, according to the establishment’s management.
Management of the Black Forge Inn in Dublin said in a statement that the alleged attackers “made an unprovoked effort to inflict damage” on McGregor’s pub on Wednesday. No one was injured and no actual damage was done to the bar. The UFC champion was not there at the time of the alleged break in.
The Black Forge Inn stated that An Garda Siochana, or Irish national police service, had opened an investigation into the incident. The police is not able to confirm names and details, however spokesperson Evan O’Leary told ESPN that they are “investigating an incident of attempted criminal damage” on Drimnagh Road in suburban Crumlin, where McGregor’s pub is located.
The Independent newspaper in Ireland reported that the back of Black Forge Inn was the target of a suspected Molotov cocktail (gasoline bomb) attack. The report explains that the bottle failed to ignite.
