Two Primary Pupils Hospitalised Over Drug Fears


Share this article


Gardai are investigating whether two west Dublin primary school pupils were hospitalised because of an ecstasy tablet.

It's claimed the children were given the tablet at school by a secondary student but thought they were sweets.

Detectives at Blanchardstown have confirmed they were called to a school after an incident was reported to them by staff on Monday 22nd January.

Two pupils were taken to Temple Street Hospital as a precaution but at this stage officers say there's no evidence to suggest it was a controlled substance.

Mary (not her real name) is the mum of the boy at the centre of the scare. She's told 98FM's Dublin Talks the boy had no trace of ecstasy in his blood or urine sample and is now back at school.

It's still not known what substance was the source of the scare.
