Good Guy Conor McGregor Donates €50,000 To Combat Ireland's Homeless Crisis

Good Guy Conor McGregor Donates €50,000 To Combat Ireland's Homeless Crisis
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Fair play to Conor McGregor, who today announced a run of events and public appearances designed to raise money to aid the homeless crisis in Ireland.

Many were critical of the amount of money set aside in the budget for dealing with the growing issue of homelessness in the country, so it's good to see one of Ireland's most famous athletes helping to generate some money for two of the hardest working charities around.

I am donating €50,000 from these events to help boost resources of those who are fighting the homeless crisis in Ireland, as we head into the colder weather.
€25,000 will go to the hard working Simon Community homeless charity. This €25,000 will fund the mobile health clinic for a full year so the people in need can get the treatment they need, when they need it.

The other €25,000 I will donate to Focus Ireland which will go towards the Family Services Division which helps family's in crisis move on from homelessness.

He's hasn't been back in Ireland long after his extended stay in Las Vegas due to the crazy demands that being such a popular fighter in the UFC bring, but he's home now and it's good to see him putting his fame to such good use.

Upcoming appearances in aid of the homeless crisis in Ireland. Tonight I will be in The Foundry in Waterford....

If any of those venues are in your vicinity then try to get along to one and help out. They should be entertaining events as well not only for Conor but his SBG teammates too.

That money will go a long way for those charities, and if you would like to make a separate donation yourself then you can do so here:
Donate to the Simon Community.
Donate to Focus Ireland.
