Conor McGregor finally returns €70 he borrowed – for ‘plumbing tools’ as an apprentice

He may be one of the richest and most famous athletes in the world – but Conor McGregor clearly hasn't forgotten his roots.

The MMA star returned €70 he borrowed over six years ago for “plumbing tools”.

The Crumliner native was a plumber's apprentice at the time and asked for the loan from boxing trainer Paddy Brady.

After surprising fans with an amateur boxing match at Crumlin Boxing Club, he gave Paddy every penny back.

And now he has revealed that Conor is also providing the facility with funds to help with renovations.

“Conor will help us renovate the gym. The gym has already been renovated but we still have something to do with the club,” he told The Mac Life.

“We are always in the process of growing, we want to keep getting better for the kids and continue to produce champions.”

During the week, Conor wrote a post on Instagram explaining how important the club was to him.
