dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate gender differences in alcohol consumption among male and female third level college students in Ireland. Quantitative research methods were used with a quasi – experimental between participant design. The variables were gender (ID) and alcohol consumption (DV). Results highlight that male students do consume more alcohol than female students and male and female students have an equal knowledge of the health risks of drinking alcohol and are equally unaware of the development of mental health issues due to drinking. Results furthermore show that female students have more unprotected sex and drink drive more than male students. In conclusion female college student need to be reminded of the health implications of engaging in unprotected sex and the consequences of drink driving. Both male and female college students need more education on the issue of mental health and how to maintain it.en
