It may be difficult to set a positive social media trend, but Independent TD Luke 'Ming' Flanagan is giving it a go, helping replace 'neknomination' with #Shrednomination.
The Roscommon TD took the challenge, along with two helpers, after being nominated through a YouTube clip.
The deputy was happy to take part in the challenge, calling it a "great idea" through his Twitter page. The clip, which you can watch above, shows the politician doing 20 squats with kettlebells.
"Well that was actually harder than I though," Ming declared after finishing his challenge.
He nominated The Rubber Bandits, radio presenter Sean Moncrieff and sportsman Shane Curran to take part in the challenge. He nominated them to do 20 chin ups within 24 hours.
