Concerns about the game and its potential impact on children have been raised worldwide in recent weeks.
The challenge circulates on social media and gaming platforms and targets children and vulnerable people.
Concerns about the cyberbullying game have spread through primary schools in Cork and a number of principals have issued text messages to parents warning of its dangers.
A text message from one primary school yesterday asked parents to supervise their children’s online activity more closely.
“Gardaí say that the challenge is present across multiple platforms such as Roblox, Tik Tok & WhatsApp and targets children and vulnerable people,” the message said.
