Drunk teenagers caused delays to some sick children being seen at Temple Street Children's Hospital on St. Patrick's Day.

The hospital has said that there was no compromising of care and that none of the teenagers had to be admitted.

The Irish Independent reports that five teenagers aged between 13 and 16 were brought to the hospital by ambulance between midday and 2pm.

At least one parent of a sick toddler was asked to give up a cubicle to allow a teenager to sleep off the effects of alcohol.
