Gardaí issue appeal following large gathering of youths drinking in Donegal seaside location

Gardaí found a group of youths with alcohol

Gardaí have issued an appeal to parents and guardians in Donegal about the possible consequences of underage drinking - as well as Covid-19 related risks.

This follows an incident on Saturday evening when a large gathering of youths took place at the football pitch and at the beach in Culdaff. 

According to Buncrana gardaí, the youths had a quantity of alcohol in their possession. 

In a posting on its facebook page, An Garda Siochana Donegal added: “Besides the fact that these young people are not the legal age to drink alcohol, such gatherings pose a risk to the youths themselves, their family circle and also the wider community as Covid-19 has not gone away!

“We are appealing to parents/guardians to speak to/advise their youths in relation to the potential consequences of underage drinking and also in relation to meeting up in groups and the associated risks due to Covid-19.”
