Here are my favourite apps for hunting down those bargains, and of course, they’re all free.

Claudio Ranieri’s Replacement – Who Want’s It?

By Andy Leech | February 28, 2017 | (No) | 1017
Every now and then, something happens that makes us believe in the beautiful game again. In a world where football seems to be dominated by boardrooms, sponsorship deals and stupidly rich absentee owners, once in a while something happens that makes us hark back to a simpler time. A more innocent, and purer time. When money didn’t matter and football was about community. A time that maybe never existed like we remember it, in truth. Last year, we allowed ourselves to be brought on a journey. W..

Can an Ulster Team Win the 2017 Allianz Football League?

By Dean Fitzgerald | February 27, 2017 | (No) | 1227
After three weeks, the Allianz National Football Leagues have been living up to their expectations as the least predictable, most entertaining part of the GAA Football calendar. Every week there seems to be a surprise upset and teams are performing above expectations around the country. Even Dublin aren’t coasting through games like they usually do. It’s refreshing to see. Ulster teams are at the forefront of this discussion, as we gauge what chances each team has to win their respective div..

By Dean Fitzgerald | February 25, 2017 | (No) | 928

In recent years, this trophy has been won by English club powerhouses such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, and ahem, Swansea City and Birmingham City… but this year plans to be a cracker.

The 2017 Oscars – What Can We Expect?

By Annabel Hynes | February 25, 2017 | (No) | 1495
The 2017 Academy Awards will broadcast live at 8pm EST this Sunday, the 26th of February, from the Dolby Theatre in LA. There are plenty of places to stream the show online, but for the Irish film fans who have better things to be doing at 2am, it might be handier to simply tune in to RTÉ2 on Monday night for the highlights.

By Andy Leech | February 24, 2017 | (No) | 1820
You just can’t beat the UFC when it comes to drama. I mean, sometimes the whole spectacle reminds me of my early teens, staying up late, watching Monday Night Raw while swilling a can of Fosters down my gullet (I was mature for my age). Boy, the UFC fans sure are excited about the return of Georges St-Pierre, and sure why wouldn’t they be? The Canadian’s often included in the ‘greatest fighters of all time’ discussion, and with the sport’s popularity hitting never seen before heights..

By Hannah Kielty | February 23, 2017 | (No) | 886
Apps are great at distracting you from your mundane daily commute, however the problem is that most of them have no longevity whatsoever, which leads to them being completely forgotten about or just deleted altogether. So, we at The Sharpe, have put a definitive list of apps together that’ll provide you with some great listening, reading and entertainment for that commute of yours.

The Best Irish Bands to Watch Out For This Year

By Alannah Kenny | February 23, 2017 | (No) | 1375
When it comes to the world of modern music, we certainly aren’t short of a diverse selection of tunes. Yet in terms of supporting Irish talent representing our own tiny nation, our selection is stripped back to say the least. Ireland does however produce some seriously world-class bands. This year we have some great newcomers to look forward to and fresh suggestions for Irish bands whose gigs you need to go and see! 5) Young Earth If four young lads from Dublin with a flair for indie-pop appea..
