Has anyone seen the Facebook event for the official Galway rag week?
I know it specifies that it's Galway and not NUIG or GMIT or whatever!
What do people think? Will you be taking part etc?
That's the link anyway.
Well, it's hardly surprising...
What difference does the fact that NUIG is no longer supporting RAG week make when someone is arrested? Does it mean that they can't drag out the "Aragh, judge, sure he's only a poor student who was having a bit of craic and had a bit too much to drink" excuse? Or is NUIG going to expel them, or what was their grand plan when they signed yon deal last semester?
Ha - I see the thirty-odd posts following on from George's criticism have been removed. A shame, really - they seemed so enlightened.
Boy... that escalated quickly... I mean that really got out of hand fast!
Charity weeks being hijacked by private business.
I wonder which nightclub is behind the facebook pages/ events.
Just about everyting else here is, why not charity?
You're an SU exec aren't you?
Completely inevitable this would happen. I just hope it isn't true that the university would revoke promises made because people went ahead and orgnaized a rag week without SU support.
Seems to be quite a casual attitude to Rag week for a man involved in protecting students from exploitation.
Well from the looks of the facebook page I would imagine its an events company, as there big thing is a mystery tour. Which does bring 500 or so people away from the city for the night.
Pretty good idea remove at least some of the people from the public's eyes. Also means town will be busy but not completely packed so a nice healthy boast to struggling pubs, chippers, and clubs. If the college are smart they'll enforce a no alcohol policy on campus. That way all the blame lies with said company organizing the week.
Where could these ten busloads of people be brought to? I realise that's part of the "mystery" but..
Any outlying town in galway normally has a nightclub for up to 1000 people, generally only open at the weekends, I'd say they'd be quiet happy for the business
