If often said that if Ireland were playing tiddlywinks, that I would support them. I love the idea of people giving their maximum effort to represent our flag and country.
I can’t however, warm to either UFC or Conor McGregor at all. To coin a phrase, if he was fighting out my back garden, I’d draw the curtains. I think he’s crude and often his sport is nothing short of barbaric. Like dog baiting for humans!
I gather I will again be in the minority here, as judging by Facebook, he’s revered as a national hero. He and his ilk just aren’t my cuppa tae!
