Michael O’Leary completes Ice Bucket Challenge


Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary is not a firm favourite among commuters, but for all those who have struggled to cram their carry-on luggage into the overhead cabinets the above clip may bring a smile to your face.

The action took place at Ryanair’s Dublin campus where staff raised €10,000 for the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation, and several got the honour of submerging their boss under multiple helpings of ice cold water, coming from wheelie bins!

O’Leary took the chance to re-nominate airline rivals Willie Walsh of IAG, Alexandre de juniac of Airline France and Carsten Spohr of German Lufthansa AG, stating, “You can’t match our fares, you can’t even freeze your fares, the least you could do is freeze your nuts!”
