Description:
In 1987 the Chainnan of the Health Board Mr. Patrick Harte T.D. requested that a survey be carried out to ascertain the level of alcohol consumption among young people in the north west. In 1988, the Chief Executive Officer of the Board requested the Acting Programme Manager Community Care to use the expertise of the Board's Schools Programme personnel to carry out such a survey. In April 1988, Mr. Brian McAuley drew up a plan to carry out an alcohol survey of second-level school students which was agreed by the A/Programme Manager Community Care. A survey instrument was developed by the Schools Programme staff which was discussed with Dr. Michael Murray of the Applied Health Unit of the University of Ulster who provided consultancy to the project.While the majority of students had not taken an alcoholic drink the following table indicated that more than two thirds of boys in the leaving cert and pre-leaving cert class had taken a drink and that 69% of girls in the Leaving cert class had taken a drink. The overall picture seems to indicate that a minority of students in the junior cycle and a majority of those in senior classes had taken a drink. This does not indicate that they would drink in any regular fashion, neither is it meant to represent that they had just taken a sip from someone else's glass.
