Houghton, Frank and Cowley, Hilary and Kelleher, K (2006) Alcohol use and sexual health of Irish adolescents. Irish Psychologist , 32 , (8) , p. 194.

The European Schools Survey Project on Alcohol and Drugs (ESPAD) survey conducted in 1999 provided valuable information on drug, alcohol and cigarette use among 15-16 year olds in 30 European countries.

This research highlights both the need for further health promotion work targeted at adolescents and the need for further efforts to enforce legislation restricting the access of young people to alcohol. This research also indicates that the majority of schools may in fact be less conservative, and more open to the study of this topic than many researchers may imagine.
