Donegal pharmacy's Mannequin Challenge!

Congratulations to staff and customers at Garrett O'Donnell's Pharmacy in Glenties.

They recently recorded their own fantastic Mannequin Challenge in the shop, with toddlers and babies even getting in on the act! Everyone on the premises was convincingly frozen in mid-action.

The video has already attracted a lot of attention, from the likes of and more.

Lisa Gallagher, one of the local people behind the event, said the challenge was taken up to help raise funds for this year's "Let your loved one light up Glenties" initiative. This involves buying a light bulb in memory of a loved one to help finance new Christmas lights for the village.

For each of the 47 customers that took part in the Mannequin Challenge, Garrett O'Donnell MPSI, donated €3, the cost of a light bulb.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 30th, is the last day for buying bulbs, which are on sale throughout Glenties.

After that, volunteers will be busy putting the lights up in time for the Big Switch on, and a guest appearance by Santa himself, this Sunday, December 4th at 6pm.
