article imageConor McGregor donates €50K to help the homeless in Ireland

By Owen Weldon     Oct 17, 2015 in Sports
Conor McGregor, the UFC interim featherweight champion, has donated €50,000 to help battle the homeless crisis in Ireland.
McGregor is preparing for a fight against Jose Aldo, but as he is preparing for his massive bout, he has been helping fight the homelessness crisis in Ireland. He pledged around $57,000 of his own money to help in the fight.
Aside from donating money, McGregor, 27, is making a number of public appearances to help raise awareness just as winter is right around the corner.
Recently, in a Facebook post, McGregor wrote about how he was going to be making appearances in aid of the homeless crisis in the country. He will be appearing in Waterford, Cork, as well as Dublin.
In the post, McGregor said some of the money will go towards funding the mobile health clinic for a full year, which will help people get treatment that they need, when they need it.
The two organizations receiving money from McGregor are the Simon Community and Focus Ireland. McGregor described the work that the two charities do as unparalleled.
Over the course of the next few days, McGregor will be meeting fans. The fighter also said the four-day event that will have him going across the county will be fun and will help him build money to put towards the homeless crisis in the country.
This Monday and Tuesday, McGregor will be doing a Q&A in Dublin, and there are still tickets available.
