PICS: Dublin college students unite because of a missing chicken goujon
Do not f**k with these students' goujons.
The local student bar in DCU in Dublin, the NuBar, is famous for its chicken goujons and chips. Ask any present or past students of the university, they'll tell you.
The meal consists of lovely fresh, crispy fries along with five succulent goujons and students have been devouring it for years and years.
That all changed at the start of this semester when students were horrified to find that there was a change; it still has lovely fresh, crispy fries but now it only has FOUR goujons.
Needless to say, there was uproar with some students left devastated.

#BringBackOurGoujon I can't live in a world where I return from my Erasmus year and there aren't 5 goujons

Goujons in NuBar is in the same category as a Sunday roast, both make you feel at home and bring ultimate satisfaction #BringBackOurGoujon

One lad even chained himself to a fence in protest.
DCU's Dylan Kehoe decided to do something about the controversial cutback so he started the #BringBackOurGoujon campaign on social media.

It says it all, doesn't it?
He also posted the campaign on his own Facebook page which has garnered plenty of likes and shares from pupils past and present.
The power of people has been well documented over the past few weeks and it looks like the students in DCU may have done enough to force a reinstatement of the fifth goujon.
Negotiations are in place for the Nubar to bring back the 5th goujon. Every little helps. Use #BringBackOurGoujon to help.
