Excessive alcohol consumption remains a substantial public health concern in Ireland. in the 2006 Irish HBSC survey, about half of students aged 15-17 reported that they were current drinkers and just over a third that they had been 'really drunk' in the last 30 days, with no gender or social class gradient. A brief analysis of the alcohol use among Irish school students aged 15-17 years across urban and rural settings is presented here.
