Conor McGregor Contracts Deadly Disease That’s Killed Several In Ireland Already

MMA champ Conor McGregor spent his New Year’s Eve ‘shaking in bed’ after ‘one of the most intense few days’ he’s gone through.


The reason the fighter spent the end of the year in bed is because he, along with half his family, have been struck down with Australian Flu Virus.

So instead of partying hard in true Conor McGregor style, he posted a reflective Instagram post before saying he’s ‘sharper and faster’.


He wrote:


Well that was a wild New Year’s Eve. Half the family hit with the Australian flu virus and some even left in hospital with it. I’ve never even been to Australia wtf.

One of the most intense few days I’ve gone thru. Big New Year’s Eve party cancelled at the last minute and I am left shaking in bed the past two days. I’ll leave that with the rest of the bad behind me in 2017 and take with me the many great experiences I’ve had this year!

None greater than the birth of my son Conor Jr. and the continued support of my family, my friends and my dedicated staff through thick and thin.

Thank you all and Happy new year to everyone!

2018 I may go back to the back pages instead of the front pages again but I have a feeling these journalists now just want me in the obituary pages so we shall see.

I will be ready for whatever comes.  Be sharp and be fast this year because I am sharper and I am faster. God bless you all and Happy New Year!

Aussie flu, a strain of influenza A, triggered two-and-a-half times the normal number of cases in Australia, leading to the name ‘Aussie flu’.

The illness has been making headlines this week as there have been a small number of deaths as a result of the virus in Ireland, according to the Health Service Executive.

According to the Daily Mail, doctors in the UK are suggesting we could see ‘the worst outbreak’ of Aussie Flu in 50 years, as official figures reveal cases ‘more than doubled in just one week’.


The report says government statistics show 1,111 people were struck down with flu as temperatures dropped last week – a 156 per cent jump on the previous week.

The HSE is also urging people – particularly those in high-risk groups – to get the flu vaccination.


In a statement, the executive said the number of reported cases of flu had increased in the week before Christmas and flu ‘is now actively circulating in Ireland’.

Get your jabs, people.
