St Patrick's Day Festivities Praised

St Patrick's Day had become renowned in the Holyland area for all the wrong reasons. There are normally many reports from local residents about anti-social behaviour, and last year the police made several arrests; none of these turned out to be Queen's students.

The University laid on an unprecedented programme of activities to provide entertainment for students in a controlled environment.

The Gown asked David Farrell, Chairman of the Holyland Residents Group, if he felt the day went off peacefully; he said, "Relatively, until about 18.00, then it reverted back to a similar riotous mood to previous years." However, in what will be interpreted by the University as a veiled complement, he added, "Considering the amount of drugs consumed the officials and universities did a good job!"
