Politicans are doing it, MND research is doing it! Who hasn’t done it!!?? Good question, because just about everybody in Ireland has done it!
MND’s leading researcher, Professor Orla Hardiman took on the ICE bucket challenge as nominated by people with MND. The IMNDA’s CEO Aisling Farrell also took on the Challenge again! And she once again called for An Taoisech Enda Kenny to do it too.
Along with the leading women in Motor Neurone Disease, some of the leading men and women in politics did it too including, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD, Gabrielle McFadden TD, Róisín Shorthall TD,Senator Cáit Keane, Senator Ivana Bacik, Cllr Mary Hanafin, and Mairead McGuinness MEP, and Caoimhghín O Caoláin TD, Joe Costello TD, Richard Boyd Barrett TD. They all wore the green t-shirt in support of the association.
Along with a cross section of staff from all areas of Trinity College, members of the IMNDA staff took on the challenge for a second and third and even fourth time!!
