MND donation text

I completed the ice bucket challenge in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association today. You can support the charity by texting MND to 50300.

Dublin City Councillors Jane-Horgan Jones (Labour) and Frank Kennedy (Fianna Fáil) did the challenge with me at the Baltimore Beacon in West Cork. None of your basins of tepid water here … we used sea water from Baltimore Harbour and ice from the fisherman’s ice plant in Baltimore, creating a very cold icy sludge…

“Thank you” to Eoin Lawlor and Keith Mannion for challenging me and I now challenge my fellow Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Councillors Deirdre Kingston and Liam Dockery.

I also remember my cousin Brian Rhatigan and former Fine Gael TD, Nicky McFadden, who passed away from motor neurone disease, and former Limerick County Cathaoirleach, Mary Harty, who died this week.
