UCD Students’ Union issues warning over spiking as nightclubs reopen

The UCD Students’ Union has issued a warning to students and young people to be vigilant of spiking via injections while in bars and nightclubs.

The Union took to social media to highlight the risks and signs that someone has been spiked.


“It’s incredibly disheartening to see the rise in reported cases of spiking across Ireland and the UK,” UCDSU Welfare Officer Molly Greenough said.

“It is vital to emphasise that the onus never lies on the victim to not be spiked, but rather on the perpetrator to not commit such a heinous crime.”

“Still, it’s important that students are equipped with the knowledge to better help them protect themselves and look out for their friends.”


Students Unions across the country are urging young people to be careful and on the look out for others while going out.
