CONOR MCGREGOR IS set to appear at a number of events in Ireland in the coming days in order to raise funds for the homeless crisis in Ireland.

McGregor will be at The Foundry in Waterford tonight as well as the Savoy in Cork on Saturday.

On Monday and Tuesday, the UFC star will appear alongside teammates at the Wright Venue in Dublin.

A statement on McGregor’s Facebook page added:

“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 (sic) in crisis move on from homelessness.

“I put time into researching both the Simon Community and Focus Ireland charities. The work of both these organizations is unparalleled with the homeless crisis in our country.

“We have put together a four day event across the country. Meet fans. Have some fun. Celebrate life, and also help build money to put towards this major crisis we have in our country.”
