This photo of Conor McGregor and Katie Taylor meeting for the first time will make all Irish people smile

The lads!

KATIE TAYLOR AND CONOR McGregor have long been vocal about their admiration for one another. Greatness recognises greatness and all that.

Here’s Katie calling him “an inspiration” as well as one of the most captivating figures in Irish sporting history.

And here’s Conor calling her “one of Ireland’s pound for pound greatest athletes”.

Last night, the pair finally met in person and posed for this cute little photo.

“Fighting Ireland’s finest,” McGregor wrote.

Taylor shared the same photo on Twitter and wrote, “Waiting a long time to meet the main man @TheNotoriousMMA! What a privilege to eventually meet and chat with the world’s best.”

Conor not so subtly showing off his timepiece there.

Everyone in Ireland right now: “Ah lads :’)”
