Conor McGregor, Saoirse Ronan and Mary Robinson are among the popular figures Irish people would most like to share a pint with this St Patrick's Day. 

The O'Donovan brothers have come out on top as the Irish person (or in this case, people) who Irish people would most like to have a drink with this St Patrick's Day. 

The Olympic-medal winning rowers rose to fame after the Olympic Games in 2016 as a result of their hilarious interviews so its easy to see why they'd be a top choice for a chat over a pint this March 17.

Coming in second place was Conor McGregor (we'll hazard a guess that is was before his incident with a fan this week,) while New York-born actress Saoirse Ronan came in third with 17%. 

There was also a strong showing from politicians, surprisingly, with 8% of those surveyed wishing to have a drink with former Irish President Mary Robinson and 7% claiming they'd like to share a pint with Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar. 

With St. Patrick’s Day soon upon us, and over 13 million pints of Guinness set to be consumed worldwide, Love Irish Tours surveyed 1,000 Irish people asking  "Which of these Irish personalities would you like to have a St. Patrick’s Day drink with?"
