Night on tiles warning for students

IT is a stark reminder of the pitfalls of drinking too much.

Students using the toilets in UCD will now be confronted with life-sized images of passed-out young people.

The campaign is to make students aware of the perils of drinking too much during Rag Week.

Fionnuala Sheehan, chief executive of, which launched the campaign, said that the images -- one of which is shown above -- would remind students of the consequences of drinking too much.

"On a night out, students will invariably pay a visit to the bathroom. It is here, away from the party atmosphere, that you often start to notice the effects of the alcohol," she said.

"The floor vinyls, positioned within toilet cubicles, will be a timely reminder to students enjoying their Rag Week that this is where they could end their night."
