The attempt, lead by Today FM DJs Ray D'Arcy, Ian Dempsey and Matt Cooper, beat the previous world record of 229 heads. Rather than have his head shaved, Ray endured a chest wax.

So far, more than €300,000 has been raised for the Irish Cancer Society in this year's campaign, which ends on Friday.

People wanting to donate €2 can text Shave to 57080.
