The Irish European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) Report 2015

This report is based on the 2015 European Schools Project for Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) Survey carried out in Ireland and is the sixth Irish data-collection wave of ESPAD.

It also provides the opportunity to observe the changes in these trends in Ireland over the six waves in the past 20 years.
