Conor McGregor has announced his return to Ireland following his trip to the Bahamas with his fiancée Dee Devlin.

The Notorious was in the Caribbean ramping up training ahead of his return to the Octagon this summer.

Sharing some photos to his Instagram Stories after he’d landed on Irish soil on Monday, McGregor wrote “Honey I’m home” and used emojis of an Irish flag, a house, and a celebratory explosion to express his delight.

The Crumlin native posed in front of a Gulfstream G550 private jet, which he described as a “bullet”, while wearing a matching grey tracksuit, white socks, and a pair of sliders.

And of course, the 33-year-old's first stop upon returning to the Emerald Isle was his pub, the Black Forge Inn.

He shared a video of himself and some pals inside the venue as they held what looked like a celebration, which he captioned: “Yup the squad. Championays”

In the clip, McGregor can be seen in the middle of the group holding up a trophy and dancing along to Beyoncé’s ‘Sweet Dreams.’

In the next snap, he revealed that he had been presented with an honorary trophy from Black Forge FC for his role as chairman of the team.

The plaque read: “Presented to Conor McGregor (Chairman) with grateful appreciation from all at the Black Forge FC.

It comes after McGregor ended his feud with Tyson Fury following a spout insults between the pair on Twitter.

Things got heated when Fury publicly praised McGregor’s enemy Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Sharing a photo of the Russian, he said: "This man did it right. Got in & won & got out on top. Big respect."

McGregor, who lost to Khabib back in 2018, reacted by referencing a video in which Billy Joe Saunders’ dad appeared to be attacked by security at his son's fight while Fury stood idly by.

The Irishman tweeted: “U bottled it with Billy joe Da, what were you doing there? U Left him, Versace t*** U. Done. Nothing.”

But in response, Fury said: “Come back when u win a fight mush, & the difference in me & you is i don’t get myself in trouble & people actually like me, your just a bully who hit old man.”

McGregor then replied: “Oh no people don’t like me what will I ever do hahahahaaha idiot.

“You are just a little r** licker bro. That's all. You stood there while your friends father was being attacked and done nothing.”

Fury didn't respond to this tweet, and later McGregor shared a clip of Fury singing praises for the former UFC champion, which seems to have put an end to the feud.

“It's all good, we forget it,” wrote McGregor. “Fair play Tyson. God bless ya mate.”
