dc.description.abstractAlcohol use is a major concern in Ireland, therefore this study has examined the effects of aggressive and impulsive behaviour as well as one’s mental health associated with alcohol use among college students. Data was obtained using the Alcohol Expectancy Questionnaire -2 (Rohsenow, 1983), the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale, version 11 (Patton, Stanford and Barratt, 1995) and the General Health Questionnaire – 12 (Goldberg and Williams, 1988). Results from a quantitative survey design consisting of 86 participants indicate no significant difference in male and female alcohol use. Further, insignificant results showed no association between alcohol use, mental health, aggression and impulsivity. It was however discovered, that females consume almost as much alcohol as males.
