Conor McGregor donated €10k to a GoFundMe page for a sick Irish child

A good gesture from the Dubliner.

A mother has expressed her gratitude to Conor McGregor after the UFC star donated €10,000 to her sick son.

Grainne McCullough shared a screenshot of the donation on Thursday, thanking McGregor for his generous contribution.

Her five-year-old son Bru had sepsis last year and is now unable to walk or eat. She had set up the page to raise money so that she can seek private care for Bru.

"Hi everyone, this is my last idea for my son as I've spent the last year trying to get him proper medical care from the HSE, he has an NG [Nasogastric intubation] tube in his nose since last September," Grainne wrote on the GoFundMe page.

"I keep being fobbed off with excuses for delay in putting in a peg, he has seen no dietician, we are desperate at this stage, we are looking for money for my son Bryan to get private care and the help he deserves. He had sepsis last year and is now unable to walk or eat I feel so bad for him."

While the donation says anonymous on the public page, McCullough received a notification saying the donation had come from the UFC star.

Whatever you may think about his behaviour, this is a great gesture from the Dubliner who is just over a week away from one of the biggest fights of his career.
