THE annual St Patrick’s Day riot in the Holy Land area of Belfast’s student quarter seems to be even worse than usual. The Beeb has some video here, and there have been 12 arrests. It’s being reported that police were called to the area after a car was vandalised and a number of students threw cans and bottles at them.
Here’s an interesting extract from Shane Boylan’s flyer when he ran for Student Union VP at Queen’s.
