Streets of Galway?Hundreds of students are currently queuing outside The Hole in the Wall bar in Galway for the annual ‘Donegal Tuesday’ celebrations.Students have been queuing for hours to make sure they get into the venue for the famous celebration as part of their RAG week events.The Donegal Tuesday event is an unofficial event in the RAG week calendar, but has been organised by students from NUIG and GMIT via Facebook and Twitter. Students have been boozing in the queue since 9am in anticipation for what students describe as the best days craic in the student calendar year.The concept is very simple, whether you’re from Donegal or not it doesn’t matter, but to gain entry you must wear Donegal colours.The session then lasts for the entire day before revellers descend on one of many nightclubs nearby.One student posted on their Facebook timeline, “Absolutely buzzing for Donegal Tuesday, almost there now, been in this queue for three hours, but it’ll all be worth it when we get inside and get the party started. #donegaltuesday #ragweek #hillsofdonegal The event has been slammed in the past for promoting excessive drinking, and the fact students begin drinking at 9am as they queue up for entry has also been criticised.However, Gardaí have announced that they’ve an operational plan in place and that any students drinking outside the premises will have their alcohol confiscated. MASSIVE CROWDS QUEUE UP IN GALWAY FOR ‘DONEGAL TUESDAY’ was last modified: February 17th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:boozeDonegal TuesdayGMITnewsNUIGrag weekSessionstudentslast_img read more
