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 […]

Love/Love TV

From time to time, I do dabble in some television that I am not deathly ashamed to proclaim my love for… Sherlock In an age of technology based crime shows such as Criminal Minds and CSI, it is refreshing to see a throwback to a past era where detectives relied solely on brainpower to solve […]

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.

If you haven’t already detected the sarcasm, it may be because you are blinded by the shiny new toy […]

The Ice Age

Beginning to tire of the phrase ‘Thanks for the nomination’? I have just the thing! An article talking about the thing that everyone is talking about. I attempted to procrastinate while writing about the Ice Bucket Challenge but it was kind of hard when it dominated every item on my News Feed. So, another viral […]

Packing for the Picnic?

Only one weekend left, ticket holders! Anyone heading to the sold-out festival must surely be packing their picnic baskets at this stage, so while you’re trying to squeeze the last naggin in, spare a thought for your own personal line-up. As I shall not be in attendance at Stradbally, I can only give you my […]

Actor, Childhood Friend, Genie

Upon agreeing to write this piece, I was as yet blissfully unaware of the passing of the great Robin Williams. That’s what happens when you decide to recklessly sleep while social media buzzes on. Countless articles have since cropped up focusing on the circumstances surrounding his death and his enduring struggle with depression. For now, […]
