Garda operations order in place as students gather in city for Donegal Tuesday

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway Gardai have an operations order in place today as students gather in their droves in the city for ‘Donegal Tuesday’.

The annual event is held as part of unofficial Rag Week celebrations with students gathering at Eyre Street from early morning.

Additional Gardai have been deployed in the area and a spokesperson says any public order issues will be dealt with according to the law.

The divisional drugs unit will also be on duty.

It comes as residents in the Bohermore area have raised concerns over antisocial behaviour in recent days by students in the area.

This includes noise disturbance from late night socialising and egg throwing which has forced elderly residents to clean exterior walls and footpaths.

Mayor of Galway Niall McNelis says students need to act responsibly and consider their neighbours; for more on this story tune in to Galway Bay fm news on the hour…
