Further to the homeless situation in Ireland…

Conor McGregor writes:

“Tonight I will be in The Foundry in Waterford. Saturday, I will be in the Savoy in Cork. Monday and Tuesday, I have gathered my team-mates for a Q and A in the Wright Venue in Dublin.”

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.”

I put time into researching both the Simon Community and Focus Ireland charities. The work of both these organisations 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. See you at the events!”

FIGHT! YAY!

Labhair Conor McGregor le Máire-Treasa Ní Cheallaigh, iriseoir Nuacht TG4/RTÉ, ag ócáid phreasa in Ionad Tionóil Bhaile Átha Cliath inniu. D’éirigh le Máire-Treasa cúpla focal Gaeilge a bhaint as an trodaí a d’fhreastail ar scoileanna lán-Ghaeilge i dTamhlacht agus i Leamhcán sular bhain sé a cháil amach i gcró an UFC.

Fair play, in fairness.

There is no escape

A trailer from episode one of Conor ‘The Ubiquitous’ McGregor’s new series, The Notorious, which starts on Monday at 10pm on RTÉ Two.

Melanie O’Connor writes:

“In episode 1, we find McGregor recovering from a knee injury after his win against Max Holloway last August. As he battles through gruelling physio and training, he must get back to his peak for his first fight in 10 months against Brazilian Diego Brandao. On home soil, McGregor must prove his worth as a sold-out O2 Arena awaits his arrival. With exclusive access, we see his team training in Iceland, his girlfriend and family adjusting to fame and the rigorous preparation required for a bout in the UFC.”

Thanks Melanie

[Catherine Noone TD] said: “I have written to the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport seeking his views on allowing this vile so-called sport to be given a platform and an audience here and fully believe that this event should not be licensed…”
The senator’s comments come ahead of [Conor] McGregor and fellow Irish fighter Cathal Pendred preparing for their respective bouts in Boston early on Monday morning.
A McGregor win could see a potential title fight in Dublin, possibly in Croke Park in front of 80,000 fans.

Ultimate FIGHT!
