Gardaí on alert for “Donegal Tuesday”
Hundreds of students have travelled from all parts of the country to Galway city’s pubs for ‘Donegal Tuesday’ – part an unofficial rag week in the city.

Hundreds of students have travelled from all parts of the country to Galway city’s pubs for ‘Donegal Tuesday’ – part an unofficial rag week in the city.

The photographs which was sent to us this morning by City Cabs shows hundreds of students clad in Donegal jerseys queueing to get into the pubs at 9.30 am this morning.

Images began to circulate on Twitter and Facebook of large queues outside some city centre pubs as early as 9.30am this morning with students wearing the Donegal colours

Gardai in the city are believed to be on alert following major anti-social disturbances during last year’s rag week when there were major disturbances on Eyre Square with a number of people being arrested.

A Facebook page set up for the event encouraged those taking part to drink responsibly.

“Paint Galway town green & gold for the day, have a good one, look after yourselves and your friends and please drink responsibly”, the page said.
