Conor McGregor Is Using His Millions To Build Homes For Homeless Families

Celebs June 11, 2019 By Hugo

Former UFC champion Conor McGregor is building homes in his native Ireland for those 'without a home to call their own'.

In a recent social media post, he revealed that he was building eight homes for those in need, and shared photos of the newbuilds to his millions of followers.

"Back on the site today, it has been a while," the caption read. "This is my first property development. We have 8 homes here closing in on finish.

"3 bedroom houses, designated for families that currently reside in hotels around the capital, without a home to call their own. But not for long. Through the storm comes the sun!

"Walking around this land and these homes today, meeting all the neighbors, knowing that soon there will be families living here, creating their own memories, and building back their lives, gives me great pride!

"Ireland forever! Ireland first! Ireland always!"

It appears the verbose Irishman is onto pastures new having announced his retirement from MMA in a statement earlier this year.

"Hey guys quick announcement, I've decided to retire from the sport formally known as 'Mixed Martial Arts' today. I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition.

"I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!"

However, the Irishman tweeted 'See you in the Octagon' just one week later so who knows what he has up his sleeve. For now, at least, it appears his current retirement is being put to good use.

"That's amazing! What a great way to give back." one user wrote.

Another comment read: "It's nice to see a sportsman with a new found wealth remembering where he came from and doing good for others."

Whilst another added: "YOU FREAKIN ROCK MAN!! Brings tears to my eyes! What a humbling experience for all that are involved! That's truly an amazing gift."

However, some were more cautious about Conor's actual motives. "Are you donating them Conor or are you selling them or renting them for personal gain?" one user asked.

Others were more interested in possible work. "How do I get a scaffolding job on one of Connor's sites??" one Facebook user asked.

Never change, Ireland.
