Cian Healy is bringing some Conor McGregor spirit to Ireland's World Cup camp

The Notorious had 31 extra autographs to sign.

IT’S SUNDAY NIGHT and the 31 players lucky enough to be in Ireland’s Rugby World Cup squad are settling in for what will hopefully be a long stint in camp.

Sunday night is evidently also squad gift night and Cian Healy has taken it upon himself to bring some inspiration from the joint most positive man in Irish sport – alongside Luke Fitzgerald of course – The Notorious Conor McGregor.

Here’s the trinket courtesy of Jamie Heaslip’s camera.

Healy has a direct line inside the McGregor camp as the Notorious’ SBG training partner Cathal Pendred remains a friend after the pair went played rugby together in their Belvedere school days.

Big Devin Toner has also unveiled his squad gift. Judging by this picture it’s a six foot pile of smoothie makers.

But Mike Ross is a clear winner so far. This is what we call inspirational.
