Conor McGregor creates theme park for son's christening

With a castle, ferris wheel and petting zoo, Conor McGregor has held a christening party for his young son which would rival most weddings.

The UFC fighter, who welcomed son Conor Jr. with partner Dee Devlin in May, appeared to spare no expense when celebrating the baby's christening, posting pictures from the weekend's event.

Dubbing the celebrations "Mac land", the Irishman shared a series of pictures of the party, held at the 560-acre Luttrellstown Castle estate, near Dublin.

The venue is no stranger to a celebrity event: Victoria and David Beckham were wed at the castle in 1999.

Pictures showed the young family riding the ferris wheel and petting pigs and rabbits at the event.

Although it appeared to be raining lightly, the teacups ride and carousel were both operational.

Conor Jr. is the first child for McGregor and Devlin, who have been together since 2008.

Speaking to Eurosport ahead of his August 26 clash with Floyd Mayweather McGregor said become a father had made him realise "what's important".

"It's been beautiful and an eye-opening experience," he said.

"As a fighter [I'm] a little more ruthless maybe, a little bit more certain and a little bit more dangerous - if I am being honest - because there is another one I am fighting for."

According to a Forbes report in August, McGregor had made $US27 million ($34 million) fighting in 2017, with an additional $US7 million ($8.9 million) in sponsorship.

However, that figure likely blew out after his clash with Mayweather, from which McGregor made a rumoured additional $US30 million ($38 million), minimum.
