McGregor pub “targeted in gasoline bomb attempt” – reports – RT Sport News


Conor McGregor’s Black Forge Inn is at the center of a police investigation amid reports that Molotov cocktails were thrown at the scene hours after the Irishman was inside the venue.

Local media say two men were seen approaching the pub on motorbikes in the Irish capital’s Drimnagh district shortly before the alleged attempted bombing, which allegedly took place after McGregor staged a private event inside.

The pub was closed to the public at the time amid Irish government regulations on Covid which state that pubs and restaurants must temporarily close at 8 p.m.

There were two people allegedly spotted on scooters who drove past the property at the time and the next time they were chased by two more who had exited the property.“Dublin Live said, citing an anonymous source.

McGregor had organized a tasting menu in the pub at the same time, so suspected attackers may have assumed he was inside. “


It is not known whether the incendiary devices exploded, but Irish police said no damage was caused to the pub during the incident.

Gardai (Irish Police) are investigating an incident of attempted criminal damage at an authorized facility on Drimnagh Road last night, Wednesday January 12, 2022“, we read in a press release from the Irish authorities.

No damage was caused to the premises. Gardai is appealing for witnesses regarding this incident. Gardai especially wants anyone with camera footage of the area at night to make them available to them.. “

The Daily Mail also reports that two homemade bombs were found in the pub.

McGregor bought the property for 2 million euros ($ 2.3 million) in 2019 and has since added another local pub, The Marble Arch, to his growing real estate portfolio – the scene of his high-profile assault on an older man in 2019 who subsequently elicited a video apology from the former UFC champion.

The Irishman is recovering from a broken leg he sustained last year in a UFC fight with rival Dustin Poirier and is expected to return to full training in April before a proposed comeback this summer .
