In a bid to stamp down on anti-social behaviour, off-licences and supermarkets in Galway city entered a voluntary agreement with gardai not to sell alcohol before 3pm on St Patrick’s Day this year.

Lord Mayor of Galway City, Councillor Frank Fahy, was fully in favour of the move, stating that public drunkenness should not be tolerated.

“It’s a brilliant idea and I commend all the shop owners and off-licences for doing this,” Councillor Fahy said.

“It shows great public spirit and it should help to prevent public drunkenness.

“We have an issue – not just in Galway,” the Lord Mayor added. “We sort of lose the plot and go all-out on drink. It should not be tolerated.”
