Gardai disperse large gathering of youths in Culdaff

Gardaí from the Buncrana District were on patrol last night when they discovered a large gathering of youths at the football pitch and at the beach in Culdaff.
The youths had a quantity of alcohol in their possession.
Gardai say 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.
They 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.
