UFC star Conor McGregor has donated $1million worth of protective equipment for hospitals in Ireland, days after posting a rousing video in which he called for a “lockdown united” in his home country.
The notoriously patriotic McGregor has a habit of pulling off outlandish speeches and then backing up his words, and his generosity has affirmed his address to the nation calling on the “great people of Ireland” to join the fight against coronavirus together, posted Tuesday.
McGregor has since paid for $1million worth of personal protective gear for hospitals in Leinster, the Irish province in which McGregor’s home city of Dublin lies.
In a conversation with the country’s Minister for Finance in direct Twitter messages, McGregor revealed he’d pledged face masks and gloves for workers in the hospitals.
