Conor McGregor delivers PPE to Irish hospitals after donating €1.3 million to help frontline workers

CONOR MCGREGOR has personally delivered some of the PPE gear that his donation of €1.3 million has helped to buy for hospitals across the nation.

The MMA star made headlines at the end of March when he announced he would be buying 1 million worth of protective equipment for medics fighting coronavirus in Ireland.

"Where we would be without those brave men and women, I do not know," he said in his announcement at the time. "May God bless over them and keep them safe!"

The first batches of the Dubliner's donated PPE gear began flooding in to Irish hospitals shortly thereafter, with images of McGregor personally dropping off essential medical supplies to a children's hospital in Dublin going viral last month, and now the martial artist is again helping his donations to reach those in need.

He took to Twitter where he shared images of him and his team delivering the much-needed PPE to hospitals around the country with the caption:

"28 counties. 165 locations. 18 vans. A real solid day for the team!

Tomorrow we go again.

Thank you to all involved!"

Further images show hospital and care home staff across the Republic collecting the vital equipment, which was generously donated by the sports star.

McGregor's €1.3 million donation has allowed hospitals in Ireland to procure up to 50,000 items of personal protective equipment, which is vital for healthcare workers to continue the fight against Covid-19 on the island.
