Wes Hoolahan has donated €18,700 to Temple Street children's hospital, monies which were raised during his recent Norwich City testimonial.
The former Republic of Ireland international ended a 10-year association with the club in 2018, with his testimonial played in Carrow Road in May of this year. Around 20,000 supporters attended the game, which doubled up as a testimonial for Russel Martin.
The Dubliner visited the hospital last week to hand over the donation, after he made a pledge to raise the funds back in May.
