Additional Gardai have been deployed in the area and a spokesperson says any public order issues will be dealt with according to the law.

The divisional drugs unit will also be on duty.

It comes as residents in the Bohermore area have raised concerns over antisocial behaviour in recent days by students in the area.

This includes noise disturbance from late night socialising and egg-throwing which has forced elderly residents to clean exterior walls and footpaths.

Mayor of Galway Niall McNelis says students need to act responsibly and consider their neighbours; for more on this story tune in to Galway Bay fm news on the hour…
