One of the most popular underage discos in Dublin has introduced a 'wet room' for drunken teenagers, in order to keep them off the streets before parents collect them.

he Wezz is located in the prestigious Old Wesley Rugby Football club in Donnybrook. Dublin 4.

The alcohol-free Wezz disco defended the room, which they call a "medical room", according to a report in the Sunday World.

"You may have four, five six in there. They're checked by the Red Cross, assessed, and then the parents are phoned immediately," promoter Donie Bolger told the paper.

"It's mandatory that nobody is ever put out on the street. They're not allow out of the, let's say, medical room, until the parents arrive. Many parents thank us profusely for having that facility and taking care of them."

However not all parents are happy with the facility, with one father telling the paper that he was "absolutely shocked" at the state of some teenagers at the event, adding that his son was in the room getting sick.
