Not a single Independent TD or Senator is prepared to back Conor McGregor for president.
The 35-year-old has been talking up his chances of a run for the keys for Áras an Uachtaráin.
He would have to get the backing of twenty members of the Oireachtas or four local authorities.
The main political parties are likely to back their own candidates when the time comes.
The Sun says one Independent told the paper, "I wouldn't even nominate him to wash the dishes."
