Groups warn teenagers warned over 'prinking' craze

7 February 2014 Last updated at 18:43 GMT

More than 100 young people were treated by paramedics for the effects of alcohol and, in some cases drugs, at a concert in Belfast.

It is believed many of them arrived at the venue already drunk, following a new trend called 'prinking' or pre-drinking.

BBC Newsline's Kevin Sharkey reports on how the incident at Belfast's Odyssey Arena on Thursday night was not a one-off.


So apparently pre-drinking is a new trend. As far as i'm aware pre-drinking has been a thing since the beginning of.. well, drinking.

It has. The only difference is there's a name for it now, I guess.

Prinking? Preing is better.

honestly though if they're reporting on new drinking trends I don't get why they wouldn't just go for neknominations, who even came up with this article

yup.

And I didn't think it was a new trend =\


It's not at all.

BBC are so behind the times. I've never even heard "prinking". Come on BBC, you're acting like the Daily Mail.

"Pre-gaming" is so 'murican



And "prinking" is so gay euro.

Texting my mom to see if this was a thing when she was young. I suspect pre-gaming has existed as long as bars have existed.

My mom is 900 years old.

The small venue I like to go to is also a bar. I like to get there early for happy hour, where the cost of a beer is about the price of a beer at a regular bar

I was about to say that it'd be hard to find a gayer term than "prinking" but I guess there is one.

How is it pre-drinking though? You're drinking the whole time.

Yeah but the activity you're going out to do isn't 'drinking'

You begin drinking before you go out and do something > pre-drinking

If you're night is "We're gonna drink" then there are no pre-drinks. You might pre-drink for a flight, or clubbing, or a football match or whatever

sensationalists need SOMETHING to scare old people with, were you expecting any less? The fact that they have rebranded it "prinking" speaks volume about how quickly they're running out of shit to be scared of. maybe if bars didn't charge $10 a shot, people wouldn't have to pre-drink.

This is why you guys are stupid.

If you get a buzz going before you go out drinking, you spend less on alcohol.
