Leo Varadkar and Conor McGregor lead the way in Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade

Fair play to them, but they're a day early...

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has been pictured marching alongside Conor McGregor in the Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade.

Varadkar walked in the New York parade last year, and has continued his tradition in Chicago, while this is McGregor's first involvement in the occasion.

Just a week after being arrested in Miami, McGregor arrived to march in the parade, which he led alongside the city’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel.

Nader Issa, a journalist working in Chicago snapped some pictures of the parade, including one of both Varadkar and McGregor side by side.

An interesting duo, to say the least.

This follows Varadkar's meeting with President Donald Trump and Mike Pence, where he discussed Brexit negotiations, and the possibility of Trump coming to Ireland soon.

It's been a busy couple of hours for The Notorious, as he appeared to agree to a fight with Nate Diaz on Twitter in the early hours of Saturday morning.

All in a day's work.
