Holyland policing on St Patrick's Day exceeded £100K
The cost of policing the Holyland area of Belfast over the St Patrick's Day weekend this year exceeded £100,000.
The total cost of policing the area on 15, 16 and 17 March came to £109,244. It does not include costs incurred by the council or the universities.
The BBC obtained the figures following a freedom of information request.
Levels of anti-social behaviour and disruption in the area were greatly reduced over the 2012 St Patrick's Day weekend compared to previous years.
There was an increased police presence in the Holyland area this year to try to prevent a repeat of some of the trouble seen during previous St Patrick's holidays.
