No we aren’t joking and yes this is in fact real news, some people want to see Conor McGregor’s face on the €1 coin.
The Oireachtas Public Petitions Committee will meet today to discuss a number of requests, including one to have Conor McGregor’s face feature on the €1 coin.
McGregor last night announced he will face Rafael dos Anjos for the UFC lightweight title in Las Vegas on March 5th as he bids to become just the third fighter to hold a world title at two weight divisions within the organisation.
His home is packed with silverware at the minute but I think adding the €1 coin to the collection is slightly pushing it!
Other petitions discussed will also include two that would see US presidential hopeful Donald Trump banned from Ireland.
