Former World Snooker Champion Shaun Murphy is buying Dublin homeless for young children

Former world snooker champion Shaun Murphy bought a homeless Dublin mother supplies for her young children.

Urphy, nicknamed “The Magician,” was stopped by a mother of two begging for food, formula and diapers for her youngest child.

He took her into the shop to buy her what she needed and after the encounter the English snooker player said that “governments around the world should be ashamed” because more could be done for those in need.

Shaun tweeted: I thought about sharing this and decided I would. I was stopped in Dublin today by a mother with two children (nine and nine months) begging for help.

“She didn’t ask for any money, just food and specifically some Aptamil and diapers for the youngest child.

“It was completely disarming to meet someone so distraught that she was willing to walk the streets asking for help. It broke me inside. It’s 2022, why are some people in this position? It’s just wrong.

“I know things are difficult for everyone at the moment. I only wish more could be done for the people who need it most.

“Maybe there is, and I’m just not aware of it, and if that’s the case, I apologize. I ended up taking her to the shops and buying her the things she needed.

“When you do something good for people, it usually makes you feel better, if only for a short time. I just felt heartbroken driving home. I hope she and her children are doing well.”

Former professional snooker player Mike Dunn praised Shaun, responding to the tweet: “Well done mate. It takes courage to just stop and listen to someone’s heartbreak, let alone buy them the essentials.

Another person added: “Such a nice touch Shaun. It’s horrible to know that people are struggling with the cost of living on this scale.”

A third said: “If they were more like you maybe the world would be a more balanced place.”
