The Redemptoristine Sisters seem like gas craic.

These Dublin nuns completed the happiest Ice Bucket Challenge yet

Ok, so we're pretty much done with the Ice Bucket Challenge now.

It's been fun. A lot of money was raised for a very worthwhile charity. We enjoyed all the celebs and the civilians doing it. We really enjoyed the fails and the Irish highs and the lows.

But this, this one right here, is our new favourite.

It features the Redemptoristine Nuns in Dublin - in full habit - gleefully taking part.

Posted on their Facebook page (yes, they have the internet and everything), the video shows three of the nuns - one with a walking frame - happily throwing the buckets of ice water over their fellow Sisters' heads.

Isn't it good? They're so giddy! And they don't seem to know when to stop...

According to their Facebook page, the Redemptoristine Nuns are "an enclosed contemplative community of religious women". Their video has over 800 likes and almost 1,300 shares on Facebook since being posted yesterday.

Now, let's draw a line under all of this and move on. Agreed?
