Conor McGregor's dad Tony has revealed he is "overwhelmed" by the generosity of those who chipped in to a GoFundMe campaign to purchase him a Leap Card.
The father of the MMA fighter became a viral sensation over the weekend after posting a video in which he grumbled about receiving €17.30 in change from a Dart machine when he had tendered a "brand new, crisp €20 note".
Needless to say, he was "not too plussed" about the experience.
Things began looking up again for Tony on Monday when a kindhearted citizen set up a GoFundMe to buy the elder McGregor a Leap Card so he will never have to fret over blasted coins ruining the lines of his "slim-fit, hand-fitted, Hugo Boss suit."
Speaking to The Irish Sun, McGregor commented on the campaign with a laugh, saying: "I am overwhelmed with the generosity of the people who contributed to the go fund me campaign.
"It touched my heart."
The campaign has more than doubled the €20 target, bringing in €50 in donations.
Someone who said they are Conor McGregor donated €5 to the campaign, writing: "F*** sake Da, take me bleedin lambo next time!"
Here's the video again in case you missed it the first time, it is well worth a watch.
