The Kildare teacher who stormed the iTunes charts with his song before Conor McGregor's money-spinning showdown with Floyd Mayweather has shared his Vegas experience online.

Teacher and song writer Mick Konstantin got up close and personal with The Notorious after Conor McGregor flew him and his friend Noel Ryan to Vegas when his song 'There's Only One Conor McGregor' hit number one in the Irish iTunes charts.

Konstantin shared a video on Facebook of his Stateside experience, writing; "It was an unbelievable experience I'll never forget."

The video showed his media appearances in the run up to the trip, and a montage of the VIP treatment he received in Vegas.

"Thanks so much to everybody that helped me along the way and made this happen," Konstantin wrote in the clip.

"I won't ever be able to explain how much I appreciated all the support and kind words.
