Conor McGregor furious with Varadkar after violence explodes

Irish celebrity and UFC fighter Conor McGregor launched a furious tirade against Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar after violent riots exploded on Dublin’s streets.

McGregor, 35, took to social media just hours after chaos descended onto the streets of the Irish capital.


Hundreds of Dubliners protested after a man went on an unprovoked stabbing spree outside a school on Thursday.

A woman, a man and three children aged between five and six were injured during the horrific attack.

Violence erupted amid reports that the perpetrator was a non-Irish citizen, with Garda chief Drew Harris blaming a “hooligan faction” of the far-right for the “disgraceful scenes”.

Reports have subsequently disputed claims that the attack was a foreign national and even suggested the suspect is an Irish citizen.

However, McGregor is pushing for those in power to do more to solve the problem.

The Irish mixed martial artist, nicknamed Notorious, said: “I don’t care about President [Michael D] Higgins statement.

“Or Varadkars statement. Or Mary Lou’s. Or Justice McEntee’s. Or Garda commissioner’s. Announce our plan of action! What are we waiting for?

“Your statements of nothing are absolutely worthless to the solving of this issue. Take Action!! Fix this situation IMMEDIATELY!”

Irish police arrested 34 people yesterday after riots caused “huge destruction” in Dublin city centre last night.

Varadkar claimed around 500 people were involved in the protest.

Rioters destroyed 11 police vehicles and 13 shops were badly damaged.

The capital’s public transport network was also targeted as several police officers sustained injuries.

Speaking this morning, the Taoiseach said: “Yesterday we experienced two terrible attacks.

“The first was an attack on innocent children, the second was an attack on our society and the rule of law.

“Each attack brought shame to our society and disgrace to those involved and incredible pain to those who were caught up in the violence.

“As Taoiseach I want to say to a nation that is unsettled and afraid – this is not who we are, this is not who we want to be and this is not who we will ever be.”
