McGregor attends the National Hockey League match, at the TD Garden, between the Boston Bruins and the Columbus Blue Jackets, and gives a rousing team talk to the Boston hosts:
Remember, nothing heroic gets done without support, without unity. We must back each other, we must support each other. Before you go out, look left, look right. Know that these people that are with you are your brothers… Boys, I wish you the best…Let’s go Boston Bruins.
The Bruins won a 2-1 in overtime, thanks to a winner from Brad Marchand. Marchand paid tribute to McGregor:
He’s an incredible guy, very energetic. He was humble. He was happy to be here…It was an honor to meet him…It’s something we’ll remember.

Brian Grace, 19 years old, from Limerick, didn’t have a ticket for the McGregor-Mayweather fight, but he ended up in front row seats worth $80,000. All he did was carry a ladder. Brian was in Vegas with two friends, who both had tickets to the main event, but Brian did not. However, he soon found himself in the front row.
There were two different security check-points. The first one was metal detectors and sniffer dogs. I hung around for a bit and then I noticed that Conor’s family – not his close family, maybe his extended family, like his cousins or something – they all turned up. I was well dressed, so I just walked in with them, and there was so many of them that it wasn’t a problem…I was walking around a bit and I noticed this ladder just lying there by a door, so I picked it up and walked in, no security pass or anything, just straight through this door. Then I put the ladder down, found my mates inside and we played the waiting game.

On a visit to the coastal town of Skerries in Co Dublin McGregor is mobbed by fans in a local pub. Landlord Ollie Grimes says Gregor found out about Ollie’s Place through an MMA connection: head chef Stephen Kavanagh is the brother of MMA womens’ champion Sinead Kavanagh.
I just got a call from Conor asking if he could pop out to Skerries for a bit of craic. I told him ‘come on out’. The next thing I knew he was stood next to the regulars in my bar. I’ve had Nicky Byrne of Westlife, and Roger Daltrey of The Who drinking in my bar but I’ve never seen anything like the crowd that turned up to see Conor. He really is the people’s champion, signing autographs for everyone and doing pictures.
After closing Ollie put Conor up at his own home rather than sending him back in a taxi to Kildare.
There’s no hotel in Skerries so I thought he can stay with me but I wasn’t really sure my wife would believe me when I rang her to say Conor McGregor was staying over. That is until I arrived home at the door with Conor beside me. I woke up the next morning thinking I’d dreamt the whole thing up, but there was Conor having breakfast with my family. I waved him off a while later. He was a huge hit in Skerries.

Allen premieres his 46th film as director, Irrational Man, at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The dark comedy about a philosophy professor who may be losing his sanity stars Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone and Parker Posey. On the film’s topic, philosophy:
There’s no positive answer to the grim reality of life, no matter how much the philosophers talk to you or the priests or the psychologists. The bottom line after the all talk is: Life has its own agenda and it runs right over you while you’re prattling. We’re all going to wind up in the same position sooner or later.
The only thing you can think of as an artist is try to come up with something where you explain to people why life is worth living, and is a positive thing, and does have some meaning. Now, you really can’t do that without conning them. You can’t be honest and do that. Because in the end, it has no meaning. You’re living in a random universe. You’re living a meaningless life.
