UL Students Will Be Strongly Penalised Under College Disciplinary Procedures After The Scenes In College Court Last Night

 

Spin spoke to the President of the Post-grad union, Andrea La Touche from UL this morning who commented on the incident that happened.

 

Andrea saw a video on Twitter last night of the scene in College Court and assumed it was old footage and decided to drive out, where she spoke with Gardaí.

 

 

The representative went on to say "We have already allocated 310 extra hours of policing from Gardaí which was introduced last week, we thought this would prevent this type of behaviour however, the students did not care and flouted the rules regardless, it is extremely disappointing"

 

UL has established a covid academic planning group throughout the pandemic and they will meet today to discuss last nights antics.

 

Furthermore, Kerstin Mey made an announcement on Twitter that students will be penalised under the college disciplinary procedures.

 

 

 

 

UL will take action with strong disciplinary measures against any student who has been found to have breached public health guidelines.
Students at UL are subject to a Code of Conduct.

— Professor Kerstin Mey (@ULPresident) March 2, 2021

 

Kerstin Mey released a video urging students to not mix with other households on February 20th as there had been positive cases on campus.

The Justice Minister says the scenes witnessed in Limerick last night can't be repeated.

Three men remain in garda custody following a large street party in Castletroy, near the University of Limerick.
Two men in their 20s were arrested for public order offences, while another man was arrested for a drugs offence.
Gardai also issued 30 fines for breaches of the Health Act.

 

It's after Gardaí in Castletroy arrested three men and issued thirty fines following a large gathering in College Court.

 

A significant number of Gardaí arrived at the student housing estate beside the University campus, at quarter past seven where dozens of people were dancing and drinking on the street.

 

Two men in their twenties were arrested under Public Order Offences while a third was arrested under the Misuse of Drugs Legislation.
