The ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor sends Ian O Connell a message on his Instagram profile.

Ian O Connell from Killarney who had a serious bicycle accident when he was 16 and was left with life changing injuries. Since then Ian has become a motivational sensation speaking at several different events and and even receiving a Garda National Youth Award.

Ian has recently started a new podcast called “Be Yourself”, which we will feature here also.  Ian also appeared on the Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy and has reflected on that with a recent Instagram post.

On that post he said:

“When I was on the Late late show Ryan Tubridy asked me who I looked up to. I told him I look up to @thenotoriousmma. Less then 24hrs later I end up watching the Main Card Fights ringside at the 3 arena with Conor. It’s fair to say that I nearly stood up with the fight. Cherish moment’s like these because they don’t come around very often. The World works in weird ways. The living moment is everything. Enjoy moments you dream about because they exceed your expectations❤️🙏”

Ian Inspires Conor

Having seen the instagram post must have triggered the moment and he reposted the initial post from Ian and put it on his timeline along with the words:

Ian brother, truly from the bottom of my heart, thank you 🙏
I am with you all the way!
