Parents are being asked to play their part this week in ensuring their children celebrate a youth disco on Friday responsibly.
The appeal comes from An Garda Soíchána in Donegal ahead of a major teenage disco in the area on Friday.
Several hundred young people from around the Donegal region are expected to attend a teenage disco in Letterkenny on May 17 and Gardaí say they will be in attendance.
A Garda statement read: “Gardai are aware that there will be a youth disco taking place in Letterkenny town this Friday night, May the 17th.
“We would advise all parents/guardians to ensure that your youths only have enough money with them for a few minerals and the bus/lift!
“Unfortunately there are almost always issues involving under-age drinking when any youth disco takes place!
“Gardai will be on patrol on the night and there will be on Friday, as always, a zero tolerance policy in relation tounderagee drinking!
“We want to ensure that the youths in attendance get home again safely after having had a fun night with their friends.”
