UFC champ Conor McGregor drops into Nando's in Newbridge

Perhaps it was the arrival of Santa in Whitewater Shopping Centre, Newbridge, yesterday that drew the double UFC world champion Conor McGregor to town. Or maybe he was just peckish for a cheeky Nando's.

Whatever the reason, he delighted staff at Nando's in Whitewater when he posed for a selfie during his visit on Saturday.

Vinny Murray posted the pic with the caption "I'd like to welcome our new member of staff to the team . .  champ"

Vinny's picture was shared by Whitewater management on their Facebook page today, and they added: "Now thats what we call a good day!!!"
