Donegal is to host Ireland's first alcohol hangover research seminar.

The event at Letterkenny Institute of Technology will bring together a panel of experts to explore the behavioural, physiological, and psychological effects of a hangover.

The free event will offer strong insights into health and safety risks of an alcohol-induced hangover from a number of perspectives.

Speakers will include the renowned Dr Joris Verster who is founder of the Alcohol Hangover Research Group.

Dr Lydia Devenney, a postdoctoral researcher at LYIT, who is hosting the event, said the area of hangovers is one which isn't as researched as many others.

She said “The health and safety risks of a hangover are substantial and far reaching, yet the area of hangover research isn’t as developed as many other areas of health research.

"Research in the area of alcohol tends to focus more on dependency than the effects of a hangover and a relatively small volume of research has been dedicated to understanding its biological, psychological and physiological consequences.

“I am delighted to welcome the team of international scientists to LYIT for this in person event and I believe that this collaboration will offer a unique opportunity to explore research findings and map out future research directions for better understanding of alcohol related hangovers.

“The seminar will be held in person and we would welcome all attendees with an interest in this particular area of research.”

Ireland’s first Alcohol Hangover Research Seminar will take place in LYIT, at 1.30pm, this Friday, the 19th of November.
