THE PERSONAL protective equipment paid for by Conor McGregor has arrived in hospitals across Ireland, it has been confirmed.
McGregor announced he was purchasing €1million worth of PPE last month to support the efforts of frontline healthcare workers across the Emerald Isle.
Now, entrepreneur Doug Leddin has announced the essential equipment bought by the Notorious has been delivered to a number of Irish hospitals.
He wrote on Twitter: "What a day! @TheNotoriousMMA made over €1 million available for sourcing and purchasing PPE equipment and with the driving force of @GalwayLeahy and assistance of @Heroes_Aid we delivered 50,000 ffp2 masks across Ireland today to our every day superheros. Kindness from everyone."
