Sinead O'Connor has announced that she will be re-releasing the original live version of the ballad she recorded with The Chieftans in 2006.
Sinead, who became a grandmother for the first time yesterday when her son Jake welcomed a baby boy, made the announcement on her Facebook page.
The 48-year-old singer gave a haunting rendition of The Foggy Dew as Conor McGregor entered the MGM Grand Arena for his highly anticipated fight against Chad Mendes last weekend.
"That was some moment, " McGregor said at his post-fight press conference.
"I look up and Sinead is surrounded by lights and smoke and she just points at me," the 27-year-old continued.
"Sinead is an absolute legend, an Irish hero, a passionate, powerful, strong woman and her voice just sends chills through my spine anytime I listen to her.
"To have her there singing live was an absolute honour."
The mum-of-four has now said she plans to release the original live version of the ballad that she recorded with The Chieftans in 2006.
