Before his return, Conor was inactive for a while. However, this year he wants to remain active and compete at least thrice. But, it seems like the Coronavirus will not allow him to do so. Not only did the virus stop Conor from competing, but it also stopped him from interacting with his fans and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

St. Patrick is the foremost patron saint of Ireland. The feast is celebrated on 17th March every year. In America, several parades take place. But, no parades took place this year as there is a ban on public gatherings.

Last year, Conor surprised a bunch of fans in the States during St. Patrick’s Day. He took part in many parades. Conor also used the opportunity to promote his liquor company, Proper No. 12.

Here’s how the Irishman celebrated St. Patrick’s Day last year.

“Americans know how to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day. In Ireland, we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. In America, you guys celebrate St. Paddy’s Week, and I love it.”

“While I could not come to America this year because of the virus, I hope to be there next Paddy’s Day and surprise many people in different cities like I did last year.” Conor McGregor told Maxim.
