Drunkenness among schoolchildren in Ireland
HBSC Ireland 2010 has found that the percentage of children who report having been ‘really drunk’ has slightly decreased between 2006 (32.4%) and 2010 (28.1%). There are higher rates of reported drunkenness among older children; 3.7% of 10-11 year olds, 19.4% of 12-14 year olds and 56.6% of 15-17 year olds. There are only marginal differences in drunkenness between the older girls and boys. These data suggest that good relationÂ¬ships with parents may play a protective role whereas peer relationships may increase the likelihood of drinking so much alcohol that children experience drunkenness.
