HE’S THE LATEST TD to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge – and as former Health Minister, James Reilly knows how important fundraising is for people with Motor Neuron Disease.

Reilly had a bucket of water (with a huge heap of ice) poured over him near his constituency office in Swords.

Also taking an icy dip with him were Robert Brown of Snowflakes autism support, and Nora Roban of Remember Us, an integrated youth group for people with special needs.

So who did Reilly nominate? Jim Breslin, Secretary General in the Department of Children.

He is donating not only to the Motor Neuron Disease charity IMNDA, but also to Snowflakes and Remember Us.
