A GREEN Party rep has called for a temporary ban on stag and hen do’s.

Leslie O’Hora blasted the nature of the scandalous single-gender parties and called for industry workers to take responsibility for the matter.

O’Hora appeared on Ocean FM to call out the “binging sessions” that commonly take place before a bride and groom wed.

He said: “In many cases, because of the nature of these [parties], they’re relatively young people, young parents with families and children.

“There needs to be, to a certain extent, a moratorium drawn on this now by the authorities and the Gardai.

“Stag and hen parties, by their very nature, they’re binging sessions, they go on for quite [some] period of time. They’re also weather dependent, to the extent that if it’s a rainy day, they stay in the pubs and don’t venture out for activities they may or not may have planned.

“They’re also a pub crawl, and I thought we had finished with the pub crawl, but in fact, unfortunately, it’s alive and well. It leads to excessive amounts of alcohol being taken. “

O’Hora called out industry workers and organisers of hen parties for their line of work and urged them to find a job elsewhere.

He claims: “It’s an easy way to make a lot of money. A lot of jobs offered in this market tend to be casual jobs and student related.

“God knows there’s lots of really decent jobs in the north-west that could be provided if people changed their focus elsewhere, whether it be the likes of Abbott Ireland (a pharmaceutical company based in Sligo), or other healthcare facilities where there’s just loads of opportunities, and loads of people offering really decent jobs.

“So it’s not all just about what’s politely called the hospitality industry.”

The Leitrim man previously told the Irish Times that stag and hen parties in Carrick-on-Shannon leave the town “destroyed” at weekends.
