VIDEO: The queue outside Galway's Hole in the Wall for "Christmas Day" is next level
We hope they're well-stocked...
Galway City's Hole in the Wall pub is the top destination for Galway students celebrating the college's "Christmas Day," an event referred to by the NUIG Students' Union as "biggest charity event of the first semester."
The day typically sees students head to the pub pretty much as soon as they open, and Hole in the Wall opens at 10:30am — meaning that the gargantuan queue outside has been building since the wee small hours.
Connacht Tribute journalist Enda Cunningham was on hand to capture the line of thirsty students in Christmas jumpers stretched all the way around the corner of Eyre Street waiting patiently for a pre-midday pint.

Respect to anybody braving the cold for the cold one. That's the kind of dedication that makes us all feel for suckers for waiting for work to finish before we head to the pub.
Another angle shows the sheer vastness of the crowd:
