The Black Forge Inn in Dublin, Ireland came under attack on Wednesday, hit with a couple Molotov cocktails, according to a report from The Mirror.
The pub, owned by former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor, was the target of petrol bombs, more commonly known as Molotov cocktails, which are breakable glass bottles containing a flammable substance such as petrol, alcohol, or a napalm-like mixture, with some motor oil added, and usually a source of ignition such as a burning cloth wick held in place by the bottle’s stopper.
The UFC star was not present at the time of the attack and no significant damage has been reported. Irish Police (gardai) have begun an investigation into what happened.
The reports states that two men were allegedly seen on a scooter heading towards the pub before the incident took place with police appealing for witnesses and video footage.
“After hours (Wednesday) it appears that criminals made an unprovoked effort to inflict damage to the Black Forge Inn,” a statement to The Mirror said. “There was no damage done to any patrons, employees or the Forge and Mr. McGregor was not on the premises at the time of the incident. The gardai have opened an investigation into the event. We are open and busy as always.”
Two more Molotov cocktails were found at the scene. It is unknown at this time if the bottles user were filled with McGregor’s famed Proper Twelve Irish Whiskey.
