Young people are calling on the Health Minister to make minimum alcohol prices the law.
It's a year since the Public Health Alcohol Bill act passed - but it is only being implemented in stages.
Teenagers from around the country are in Dublin calling on Minister Simon Harris to "enact the act".
He confirmed earlier this week that he will look for the Cabinet to approve minimum prices on alcohol before the end of the year.
However, some changes will be introduced next month, including advertising for drinks companies being banned on public transport and at stops.
"I think it's so, so easy for people to get alcohol," said Grainne McGlynn who is Mayor of the Donegal Youth Council. "Even people under the age of 18. At teenage discos it's everywhere, it's really difficult for it to be enforced.

"But, I upping the prices it will be much harder for younger people to get and also stopping the advertising will help."
"Irish culture especially has a lot of links with alcohol," said Lorraine Fitzpatrick, who is a student at Causeway Comprehensive in County Kerry.
"Back then, we didn't have the knowledge we have now" she continued about the risks of alcohol on people's physical and mental health.
Scotland brought in similar legislation in 2018 with its Government saying alcohol sales fell to their lowest point in 25 years, and believe almost 400 lives will be saved in the laws first five years.
