The Best Free Music Apps

By Dean Fitzgerald | February 22, 2017 | (No) | 2044
Human beings are, by nature, scabby pricks. Everyone loves getting things for free because it’s who we are. So when anyone hears that there are apps that provide things for free, we’re all over it! Human beings also love music, because music gives us a point of release, it can reflect or change our mood, keep us entertained, and it can allow us to express emotions in a way that we feel comfortable. That, and Ed Sheeran. The man is an international treasure and probably great craic on a night..

The Alternative Ways of Staying Fit

By Annabel Hynes | February 21, 2017 | (No) | 1627
Going to the gym is the standard method of staying fit in the modern world. Many people have desk-bound jobs that keep them stationary for most of the day, and leave and return to their homes in darkness. Keeping that in mind, psyching yourself up for the gym can be a herculean task when you’ve been working or studying all day, and a lot of people simply don’t bother. Why emerge from one tedious job only to steep yourself in another? Well, that’s where you have to start getting creative. R..

FA Cup 6th Round – Who Are The Dark Horses?

By Andy Leech | February 21, 2017 | (No) | 1228
There has been much debate about the relevance of the FA Cup in recent times. The “magic of the cup” is being shoved down our throats regularly by media outlets such as the BBC. But replays, player rotation, and designated weekends are really beginning to irk a generation that has grown up with the sex-appeal of Sky Sports. Nevertheless, as the competition progresses, excitement and interest levels grow. While the FA Cup may not have been the objective of a club at the dawning of the season,..

Irish Television… Is Anyone Watching Anymore?

By Andy Leech | February 18, 2017 | (No) | 2620
It’s Saturday night. I’m watching the flickering screen of my 100 inch TV. I’m with the people I love. The room is warm. There’s food in my belly. I’m lucky. But why do I have this uneasy feeling? Why do I feel guilty? Dirty, even? Maybe I left the car running outside? Nope. Maybe I forgot to feed the dog? No, that’s not it. I hate the dog, that wouldn’t make me feel guilty, at all. Maybe it’s just a general guilt of white male privilege, one that I take massively for granted, an..

Is Breakfast Still The Most Important Meal Of The Day

By Aoife Crilly | February 15, 2017 | (No) | 2555
For a long time now many people have considered breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. In recent years, there has been a huge debate into how important breakfast really is to our general health. With people becoming more and more aware nutrition and experimenting with their morning meal we started to wonder how exactly did breakfast become known as the ‘most important meal of the day’ and is this even remotely true? Or is it just a mere myth? The Rise Of Consumerism One of the..

Can an English Club Win the 2017 Champions League

By Evan Coughlan | February 14, 2017 | (No) | 1224
THE CHAMPIONS! Ah the Champions League last 16, the round where the competition finally gets interesting after the somewhat predictable group stage of the tournament. In saying that, one team nobody thought would get this far are the Premier League Champions Leicester City. The Foxes have defied everyone’s expectations (well expect Gary Lineker’s) and have qualified for the last 16 of the competition along with fellow English clubs, and regular visitors to this stage of the competition, Arse..

Is Ronnie O’Sullivan The Messi of Snooker?

By Andy Leech | February 13, 2017 | (No) | 4843
Last month, when Ronnie O’Sullivan made the bold claim that he can be “the Messi of snooker”, most of the sporting world collectively sniggered and said, “You play snooker mate, pipe down”. But to the astonishment of many, just a short time later, five time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi, declared to the masses that he one day wished to be “The Ronnie O’Sullivan of Football” (this may be an alternative fact). Despite the rather arrogant, and at times, quite strange utterings ..

How to Get a Promotion Without Actually Asking

By Dean Fitzgerald | February 13, 2017 | (No) | 1691
You work hard, do your job well, and only take 3 toilet breaks a day. You feel you deserve a promotion. Matt got one last year and he can barely spell the word ‘promotion’. Plus, you don’t want to ask for one in person because let’s face it, it’s extremely awkward and only people with either little shame or massive confidence actually ask outright. Before Starting You want that promotion, but you don’t want to have to ask for it. What do you do? Before you follow these steps, first y..

The Brew Dock, Dublin – Review

By Andy Leech | February 12, 2017 | (No) | 5781
I must admit, I desperately tried to avoid being this guy. I really did. I know what you’re all thinking. This is just another review from another arsehole who likes to let everyone know that he drinks Craft Beer. I swear this happened by accident. Please believe me. I stumbled upon The Brew Dock one cold Tuesday evening, as my girlfriend and I were early for a bus and had some time to kill. We weren’t in the mood to hang around Bus Áras so we decided to try out what we thought was an ..

On The Mat – Elimination Chamber 2017 Preview

By Evan Coughlan | February 12, 2017 | (No) | 1332
The Elimination Chamber match was introduced in 2002 by then Raw General Manager, Eric Bischoff, and some 15 years later the Chamber match is still going strong with it’s seventh installment kicking off tonight in Phoenix, Arizona. Now while we’d like every match to take place inside the structure that houses 2 miles of chain, only the main event for the WWE championship will do so this time around. The WWE have put together an intriguing card for this Smackdown exclusive pay per view so..
