THE UBIQUITY OF the ice bucket challenge means it’s becoming more difficult for participants to soak themselves in unique ways.

But Fine Gael TD Brendan Griffin really excelled himself with his challenge.

The Kerry South deputy clearly put a lot of work into the clip above which is a play on the famous shower scene in the Alfred Hitchcock classic ‘Psycho’.

It’s well worth checking out.

Meanwhile, his party colleague and junior finance minister Simon Harris is another to get involved and he’s nominated Brendan Howlin among others:

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin and Reform Alliance TD Lucinda Creighton have also got soaked in the last 24 hours.
