Students and young people are being unfairly vilified for spreading Covid-19 with irresponsible behaviour, according to leading public health experts.

The photos went viral and sparked a national outcry, even leading Galway Senator Ollie Crowe to call for the Army to be drafted in to assist if future similar public order situations arise.
