HSE suggests parents organise alcohol-free celebrations

Parents are being asked to take steps to ensure their teenage children celebrate their Junior Certificate exam results safely and are aware of the dangers of underage drinking.

More than 61,650 candidates will collect their results from their schools this morning or through the online examination results service from 4pm.

Alcohol-free events are held throughout the country every year to celebrate results night, but some 15- and 16-year-olds manage to acquire alcohol despite the annual warnings.

The Health Service Executive (HSE) has suggested parents participate in the celebration this year by organising gatherings at home or elsewhere, or by attending age-appropriate events where alcohol will not be available.
