Electric Picnic festival goers warned of high strength drugs

Young people attending this weekend’s Electric Picnic Festival in Co Laois have been warned of high strength drugs in circulation, particularly as a number of people have died already this year to drugs.

The warnings come as four young men were rushed to University Hospital Kerry in recent days for side effects associated with suspected ecstasy use. It is believed the men, all in their late teens to early 20s, were in Waterville at the same time as the Charlie Chaplin Festival last weekend.

Garda sources last night said there was no confirmation of MDMA in the four, but that the cases would be further examined in the coming days.
