The University of Limerick (UL) has said any of its students found to have attended a gathering in the Castletroy area of the city on Tuesday night “will face suspension, pending a full investigation, or possible expulsion”.
UL confirmed its representatives met An Garda Síochána on Wednesday to discuss the public order incident.
In a statement released on Wednesday afternoon, UL said it deplored the behaviour of a small minority of students it said were “living in the off-campus estates in private rented accommodation”.
“The University is conducting an investigation to identify any UL students who took part in the gathering, which represents a serious breach of both the public health restrictions and the institutional code of conduct.
“Students at UL are subject to a Code of Conduct. Any student found to have attended the gathering will face suspension, pending a full investigation, or possible expulsion,” the statement concluded.
