Needle spiking ignites fears of a worrying new trend emerging

There has been a concerning rise in reported instances of young women being spiked in nightclubs.

The reports have led to a nationwide conversation. It is a huge concern and our Producer spoke to one woman from Tipperary who fell victim to this at a nightclub in the Mid-West recently.
