The party went into the early hours of Tuesday morning. 

Residents in a Limerick City housing estate have condemned a 'Project X' style house party.

The gathering took place in the College Court area this week as students returned to campuses.

Gardaí say they attended the scene and dispersed hundreds of attendees.

Local representatives say Gardaí and UL had deployed extra security last year as part of Covid measures.

Gardaí were forced to disperse the party this year, but it's believed no arrests were made.

Local Councillor, Catherine Slattery, says meetings took place last year to ensure these parties would stop:

"It became a major issue last year, and attracted a lot of adverse publicity for the university," she said.

"A great deal of discussion and negotiation subsequently took place between the university, local representatives and local residents."

"We were all assured by the university that the problem had been sorted - but unfortunately this is not the case."

"The University need to step up and take responsibility for what's happening with their students."

"(The residents) have work to go to, they have families, they need their sleep. It's simply not on anymore."
