Will Bellator Ever Be Able To Compete With The UFC?

By Andy Leech | January 31, 2017 | (No) | 1272
You were a bit nervous clicking on this link, but you closed your eyes and went for it anyway. You know you love the UFC, and you really enjoy telling all your mates about how much of it you watch. “Conor McGregor is bleeding deadly at UFC, isn’t he, boys?” you’d say, hoping there’d be no follow up questions from your one mate who just happens to know more about MMA than Coach John Kavanagh! So, you saw this headline, noticed it had something to do with the UFC, and went ahead and clic..

Must-See Marvel Movies Coming Out This Year

By Evan Coughlan | January 31, 2017 | (No) | 697
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is something to behold. Over the years, there’s been, what seems like, hundreds of Marvel movies. Some good, some great and, well let’s face it, the occasional stinker (I’m looking at you 2013’s The Wolverine). The Marvel juggernaut doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon though, with three cinematic releases due to hit our screens this year; the most movies Marvel have released in a single year since the inception of the MCU in 2008. Let’s tak..

5 Exciting Gaelic Footballers Worth Watching in 2017

By Andy Leech | January 30, 2017 | (No) | 1882
Such are the demands placed on inter-county GAA players, it is becoming increasingly harder for footballers and hurlers to commit to a career at the very top. Eight high-profile Donegal players decided to take a step back from inter-county football for 2017. Sure these poor lads haven’t seen their families for about five years, not can they even remember what a Chinese tastes like. As a result of this, each year we are seeing more and more young players get a chance to impress at the very high..

On The Mat – The Ultimate Royal Rumble 2017 Preview

By Geoff Dorrity | January 27, 2017 | (No) | 1329
The over the top extravaganza is back and promises to deliver one of its most star-studded shows in many years. We at The Sharpe have put together a breakdown of biblical proportions to celebrate the 30th edition of the Royal Rumble! The Past If someone were to ask us what our first memory of the Royal Rumble was, we would probably think back to the days of Doink and Dink pulling off a rakeload of cheeseballish antics, Yokozuna flat lining half a dozen wrestlers or maybe ‘Big Daddy Cool&#..

How Do I Get Out Of A Mobile Phone Contract?

By Aoife Crilly | January 26, 2017 | (No) | 769
Are you wondering how to get out of your mobile phone contract? You must be. If not you wouldn’t be here reading this! So, you’re probably pretty unhappy with the current contract you’re in and more than likely pretty desperate to break the contact some how. Phone companies tend to be extremely vague in advising how you can get out of a bill pay contract which makes a lot of sense because they want to keep getting your hard earned cash. It’s because of this you’ll ..

Boojum Abbey Street – Review

By Evan Coughlan | January 24, 2017 | (3 Comments) | 3135
There are quite literally hundreds of places to get grub in Dublin City Centre, but when I eat somewhere I think it’s so important that 1) the food is good (well duh!), 2) the staff are friendly and 3) that it’s good value for money. I recently ate at Boojum on Abbey Street and I have to say it ticked all of these boxes. The Food Okay, if all you eat all day, every day, are your Mammy’s Sunday dinners, which consist of half boiled veg and bone dry meat, then Boojum isn’t for you ‘cause..

The Best Carpool Karaoke We Have Seen So Far

By Annabel Hynes | January 23, 2017 | (No) | 1078
2016 was many things, and not all of them good. What it did have going for it however was some truly brilliant music – and the Carpool Karaoke segment of James Corden’s Late Late Show put this into perspective, with musical guests that belt their songs proudly while driving alongside James on his commute to work. Who were the best (and loudest) of the bunch? Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato With conversation veering from Nick’s many dating exploits to the origin of DNCE’s song ‘Cake by the O..

The Best Netflix Boxsets to Binge on Right Now

By Alannah Kenny | January 22, 2017 | (No) | 1191
There’s no denying that getting back into the swing of everyday life in January can be a pain in the arse. The weather is typically Irish, work is typically tedious and you’re just going through the motions. Well fear not because Netflix has a plan to keep you ticking over. Stuck inside and needing some quality entertainment? Here are some of the best shows to watch out for that could potentially become your next binge fest! 5) You, Me, Her Season 1 (Airing from January 18th) Described as te..

Using Your Second Fantasy Football Wildcard Wisely

By Andy Leech | January 21, 2017 | (No) | 824
Talking from a personal point of view, Fantasy Football is a funny one. Every year without fail, I spend hours doing research and crafting a team that I think can compete with the best of them. Just as I’m drifting off into an uneasy sleep on the eve of the opening weekend of Premier League action, a brainwave will hit me and I’ll be wide awake. “This is Shane Long’s year. 20 goals, no bother.” And before I know it, I’m slapping him in the team. Twenty-four hours later, I’ll wonder..

Being a better person is not as strenuous as you might think. Simple little changes can greatly change how you are as a person in a very positive way. To become a better person you must firstly be willing to change. Nobody is a perfect human being but making a few slight changes can greatly change how you feel.
