daithi on ice

Daithi O'Se did the ice bucket challenge on the Rose of Tralee last night

What the fliuch?

YESTERDAY, DAITHI O’Sé tweeted that his mother-in-law had nominated him for the ice bucket challenge.

And so it became abundantly clear that Daithi O’Sé would be doing an ice bucket challenge on the Rose of Tralee.

After a degree of ‘will he or won’t he?’, Daithí closed out the broadcast by having a bucket of ice dumped on his head, all in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

He also nominated Ray D’Arcy, Ryan Tubridy and Marty Whelan to follow suit.

Today, the hashtag #daithionice is still trending on Twitter.

Some noted the historical nature of the event.

While others noted the hipness of the stunt.

Most people gave him his due.

And, of course, one took note of his stinginess.

As for Daithí? Poor Daithí was all tuckered out.
