Who would like 1 million of these great coins? Let’s go Oireachtas! #VoteYES!


UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor almost had his likeness plastered all over Irish currency.

The Oireachtas Public Petitions Committee met yesterday to discuss a number of requests, including one to have McGregor’s face feature on the €1 coin.

The petition was received on December 15, 2015.

Below is video of that request being denied.

McGregor then responded in typical McGregor fashion.
