Stand Clear, Luggage Doors Operate

You know the feeling. You’re checking your watch more than the White Rabbit and silently cursing yourself for once again placing your faith in Bus Éireann. While our innate Irishness is what makes us endearingly unique, it’s times like these that the lackadaisical attitude begins to grate. We can forgive the odd few minutes of […]

Hello Darkness, My Old Friend

“Fierce nip in the air, isn’t there? That’s it now, that’s the end of summer.” Said every pensioner ever this week. We continue to be fascinated by the phenomenon that is weather year after year despite the cyclical nature of sunshine and rain remaining consistent since the dawn of time. You can see why people […]

Seeks Friendship, Maybe More

No plans this weekend? Not to worry! One of the oldest and grandest festivals is currently in full swing in an Irish town right now. And no, I don’t mean the Ballinasloe Horse Fair. The sleepy village of Lisdoonvarna in Co. Clare comes alive each year for its annual matchmaking festival which continues to attract […]

Hurrah, the iPhone 6 has finally been released! And it’s only €700, what an absolute steal! And I can get an absurdly sized larger model for a mere extra €100?! Apple, you are really spoiling us.

Welcome back, summer! God how I’ve missed you…I think…although, you do seem a little hotter than usual. And was it always this…sticky? Every year, the exact same phenomenon.

Beauty is in the Eye of the Mac Holder

Welcome to puberty, girls! Time to strip you of that charming disregard for your physical appearance and imbue you with a sense of embarrassment and self-disgust. That carefree childhood game of dress-up has now become a daily chore you must endure lest you feel like Shrek all day long. Appearances can be deceiving and that […]

Run Fat Girl, Run

Anyone’s news feed beginning to look a little like this?: Friday: Your fit friend is fundraising for their third marathon! Saturday: All of your remaining friends and acquaintances are preparing for a 10k! Sunday: A local pig has just completed his first 5k. That’s right, everyone but YOU. Before I go any further, I wish […]

Red Red Wine

Age 17: This tastes like metal, why does anyone drink this? Age 23: This crimson elixir is flowing through my veins like oxygen. A relationship with red wine is like the one you have with a terribly cheesy song; you cannot stand it at first and then suddenly it’s all you need and love in the world. Never […]

50 Shades of Disappointment

What is the difference between a new graduate and Cupid? Nothing! You are both optimistic beings with an overwhelming zest for life and a romanticised view of the world. You are fun-loving; imbued with a sense of goodwill and a burning desire to make your mark on the world. Fast forward four years and the […]
