Conor McGregor – Mother and Father
Conor McGregor’s father, Tony McGregor was born to an Irish father and English mother. After graduating from primary school, Tony McGregor attended Ringsend Technical Institute in Dublin, but soon left at the age of 16. That is the same age when he met his wife, Conor McGregor’s mother Margaret McGregor.
Tony McGregor worked as a mechanic’s apprentice for a year before quitting that too and getting a taxi license. He worked as a taxi driver for more than 25 years before retiring.
In a 2016 interview with the Irish Independent, Tony McGregor revealed how as a newlywed couple, he and Margaret saved up for years for a house of their own in the suburb of Crumlin.
“That was what you did as a working-class person. You didn’t go to university or college – you got married and had kids and became a man early on in life. I drove a taxi for 26 years, which I loved, although I worked nights around the clock so I was like Dracula,” Tony McGregor said.
The night shift allowed him to spend time with his kids during the daytime and take Conor to his football matches on Sunday mornings. During his early years, Tony wanted Conor to grow up and become a plumber. The entire MMA community is glad that did not pan out.
A 2017 Irish Sun interview reported that Tony McGregor was taking a course to become a celebrant.
“It’s a course I’ve been doing with the Irish Institute of Celebrants and I’m absolutely loving it. It’s very professional and I’m learning a lot,” Tony said.
