    Is this a forbidden thought?
    Could it literally be a publicity stunt? After all, there was neither damage nor injury, but plenty of chatter about Conor and his pub.

    If Conor has his insurances lined up this could be a big payday.

    the bar is now as "notorious" as Conor is, and will be packed with people for the next year. will do well for his upcoming chain of pubs $$$$$.

    It’s probably an insurance fraud scene done by McConner.

    In my mind
    Throwing a molotov while people are there, and almost as I understand it no damage to the building.
    If you want insurance you wanna burn down the whole place more or less.

    Feels more like a warning, McG has pissed some body off.
    If its some big shots or some local hood rats, who knows?

    Are all the Irish you've met the kind of young men who start fights in Las Vegas though? Because I can assure you that the majority of Irish people think he's a piece of shit. I'm talking about the average person, middle Ireland, the silent majority. Because they think he's an embarrassment to the country.

    Look at the comments on this article about the Poirier fight on an Irish news website to get a sense of what people think of him: https://www.the42.ie/leg-injury-to-...-bout-against-dustin-poirier-5491984-Jul2021/

    Nope mostly young couples on holidays (before the lockdowns.)

    Have a good read of the comments its the same group of haters sounding off to each other. I would need a larger sample. I just don’t buy that he is as universally hated as some claim.

    He seems extremely popular.

    Feels more like some idiot kids tbh.

    If it was “gangsters” the likelihood of them stuffing up would be pretty low.

    Im honestly glad no one got hurt.

    For those discussing billionaires security details… obviously it varies case by case, depending how public their lives and whereabouts are, but I’ve met two and in both cases the setup was something like this:

    - one truly top tier former special forces guy, clearly armed and hyper attentive, following them everywhere

    - a second former special forces guy, likely armed, driving the car or following in a second car if they were driving themselves

    - a third former special forces guy, likely armed, staying at their main home when they are out or away

    - a fourth special forces guy as a “jolly” who joins the team for crowded events, follows the spouse or family if traveling separately, etc

    - several normal unarmed security guys as drivers/carers for spouse going shopping, kids going to school, monitoring holiday homes when noone is there, helping the main team out at crowded events, etc.

    Impressive. And effective no doubt in almost all circumstances.
    But no one can be perfectly protected, not even Presidents.

    In Conor's case, I doubt anyone at all is trying to kill him. He wasn't even personally attacked.

    That's a fair post

    I would have guessed from people I converse with around 80% despise him. Though I'm from the North of the Island, So I guess he would have some more that like him in the free state
