No one is saying the IT should be shutdown and every student chased out of Sligo by a pitchfork wielding mob (tempting as that may be ). But it is high time the IT finally faced up to the anti social behavior of a certain number of it's student population and actually did something about it. I seriously doubt that the rationale of "sure it's only a minority" is much consolation to local householders. That minority is causing a major amount of trouble.
The fact is that Glencarraig estate is in a terrible state of disrepair and downright squalor, and this has coincided with the rise of student accommodation in the area.
And again, anyone who thinks this is an overstatement by all means go and see for yourself. There are days when the place resembles a tip.
