Warning for youths

WEXFORD gardai have warned young people against the dangers of excessive drinking.

'Most public order offences are caused by drinking and excessive drinking,' said Sergeant Denis Whelen this week.

'The neknomination game is a step further. It's taking it to another level.'

'Young people who take part could be putting their lives at risk,' he said.

Sergeant Whelan said the current generation of teenagers are experiencing a new kind of peer pressure through their interaction on networking websites.

He encouraged parents to be vigilant in relation to young people's social behaviour both on and off the Internet.
