Kerry gardaí lead initiative to crack down on underage drinking

Gardaí are leading an initiative to crack down on alcohol misuse in Kerry, in particular underage drinking and drink-related crime.

Despite a reduction in alcohol-related incidents over the past four years, gardaí are concerned about the number of continued breaches of the Public Order Act due to excessive drinking.

The county’s most senior garda, Chief Superintendent Pat Sullivan said: "From my experience of prosecuting in the district courts, the sittings would be very short if alcohol and drugs were not such a factor."

Public representatives and other community-based groups are also part of the initiative.
