Pic: Irish man blags his way into Conor McGregor’s pool party and gets a snap with the man himself

Irish people are becoming notorious for this thing

Irish people are becoming notorious for this thing.

What is it about Irish people and sporting events abroad? We’ve already seen how some absolute chancers have managed to score themselves free tickets into the Superbowl and Wrestlemania but Cork man Brian Lenihan has done his very best to top this.

Like the thousands upon thousands of Irish people in Las Vegas, Brian travelled out to see The Notorious claim the Interim Featherweight title after his impressive victory over Chad Mendes but the celebrations didn’t stop in the MGM Grand.

We already told you about the pool party that Conor McGregor attended to celebrate his latest win but it seems that Brian’s luck was definitely in on Sunday because he managed to talk his way into the exclusive event.

The Cork man was originally in attendance at the ‘table club’ in the SLS Hotel but he managed to charm some of the venues staff and security into letting him join the more exclusive private party.

Having seen these pictures, it looked like The Notorious admired Brian’s pluck.

Take a look.
