Irish Bride and Groom Complete Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS
Wed 27-08-2014

Geraldine and her new husband Robert, who got married in a civil ceremony at the Lucan Spa Hotel, completed the Ice Bucket Challenge at their wedding reception surrounded by friends and family.

Geraldine spoke on why they chose to do the Ice Bucket Challenge on their wedding day. "I wanted to do this for such a special cause... keep donating!"

Staff threw two buckets of ice cold water over the newly-weds, soaking them to the skin. Hotel staff rushed to give Geraldine a towel.

Robert nominated some of his groomsmen to take the challenge next - no word on whether or not they did it immediately in their suits!

The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised over €350,000 for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) and over €15m for the ALS Foundation in America.
