According to the statement, the attack was unsuccessful as it ended in no damage and no injuries. According to the MMA Fighting article, the release states that the event was unprovoked. It also states “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.”
“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.”
MMA Fighting also states that “according to a separate report from the Mirror, two men were spotted on scooters headed towards the pub just before the incident took place, with authorities now seeking witnesses or security footage that would help the investigation.”
According to the report, two Molotov cocktails were thrown at the establishment and two more were found at the scene.
McGregor purchased the spot in 2019 for approximately $2.2 million according to MMA Fighting. Lately, McGregor has been promoting the place a lot on his various social media channels, promoting the fact that they have a new stout coming out.
Of course the pub also prominently features Proper No. Twelve, McGregor’s Irish Whiskey brand.
The place recently remodeled and reopened but it looks REALLY freaking cool and I’d definitely visit next time I’m in Dublin.
