Poll: Have you done the Ice Bucket Challenge?

Everyone and their granny are chucking buckets of ice water over each other. Have you?

IT HAS BEEN dominating your social media streams all week and has so far raised €680,000 for the Irish Motor Disease Association.


The Ice Bucket Challenge has had everyone and their granny chucking buckets of ice water over themselves for charity.

The initiative began earlier this month in the US to raise funds for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the US term for Motor Neurone Disease) and quickly made its way to Ireland.

We want to know if you have done the challenge and what you make of it all?
