Roy Keane was on hand this week to help launch a charity wellness centre at Penny Dinners in Cork.

The former football star popped into the new centre in Leeside which will offer medical, emotional and educational support to all who need it most.

Penny Dinners, which opened as a soup kitchen during the great famine, is one of the county’s oldest charities.

The free service which is open seven days a week provides 2,000 meals a week to those in need.

Pictures shared by Penny Dinners Cork show the former Manchester United midfielder when he visited them on Monday.

“Roy Keane opening our new Wellness Centre,” the post was captioned.

Keane posed with volunteers at the service as he signed a green Ireland jersey.

Another picture shows the usually-grumpy football pundit as he couldn’t help crack a smile while posing with a baby in a car seat.
