Conor McGregor Sends Passionate Message To Irish Leaders To Begin Full Lockdown
Conor McGregor is one of the biggest stars Ireland has ever seen. Now he is using his platform to implore Irish leadership to begin a full lockdown.
McGregor was expecting to be very active in 2020. However that seemingly all changed when current health situations caused sporting events around the world to shut down or be postponed. Regardless, he understands the gravity of the situation, and has set a positive example.
This continued recently, when Conor McGregor took to Instagram. Here, he begged the officials in Ireland to initiate the full lockdown they are considering.
“I want to say that while we are all currently debating a full lockdown, I feel that we must,” McGregor said. “Any time spent debating this is needless time from the clock. I know a good, tough fight when I see one, and we have one on our hands now. I want to call upon my people, the great people of Ireland. This fight needs us all. We are all in the red corner together and awaiting the bell, so let’s gather together and ring the bell ourselves, including the people of the rest of the world.
“True lockdown must begin, and it must begin now,” McGregor continued. “A lockdown together, a lockdown united. We must close our airports, we must close all non-essential business, we must cut all non-essential travel. Commissioner Harris and Vice Admiral Mellet, we must prepare and deploy our units to all and any known built-up areas across our country now! President Higgins, you must give these great men and women the power to enforce this task if necessary. However, I know that when the true seriousness of this is understood, as it is becoming now, our great nation will oblige and impeccably do so. It is time for a full lock down and we are ready. Powers that be, I’m calling to you all. The fate of our great island depends on it. This is my proposal, and I pray that we can make this happen.
“We need to take the same measures as some of the heavier affected countries, only we must do it in quicker time,” he explained. “We have the advantage here in that we can see this coming. We can see this coming! But if we do not act on our advantage, then we can not expect different results. We are not adhering to social distancing, at least not to the extent required to halt exponential growth. A lockdown will facilitate this. It will reduce transmissions, it will take the pressure off of our frontline staff, and it will allow us to identify all of our cases. These methods are stringent but necessary, and have worked in China and Hong Kong.
“Ireland we have got this!” Conor McGregor concluded. “Not only do we have the formula, we have it ahead of time. Let’s go Ireland, let’s go the rest of the world. A lockdown, united. Together we stand! God bless us all.”
This is a pretty intense message from Conor McGregor. It is clear that he cares deeply for Ireland, and is taking this global threat seriously.
