DUBLINER CONOR McGregor has broken his silence for the first time since his pub in Drimnagh was subject to a petrol bomb attack on Wednesday night.
The Crumlin native posted on his own Instagram account showing him holding a fresh pint of Guinness inside his own Black Forge pub.
McGregor seemed to be in good spirits and labeled the post "Thirsty Thursdays".
The former UFC champion said:
"Happy thirsty Thursday everyone out there enjoy yourselves because life's a bitch and then you die. You never know when you're gonna go. Rip all our soaring souls, they are still right here among us! Spirits remain!"
The Black Forge Inn was allegedly targeted by two men on scooters during a taste testing event.
Gardai responded to reports that two pipe bombs had been left at the premises.
The attack took place on Wednesday night on the Drimnagh Road in Dublin 12.
Officers are now appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time to come forward with information.
A garda spokesman said:
"Gardaí are investigating an incident of attempted criminal damage at a licensed premises on the Drimnagh Road, Crumlin last night, Wednesday 12th January 2022.
"No damage was done to the premises.
