By Dean Fitzgerald | February 11, 2017 | (No) | 1740
‘Here we all are now, all the lads’, as Fr.Todd Unctious would say. It’s time for the 2017 AIB Football All-Ireland Club Championships Semi-Finals and by god it feels like a long time since the provincials were played. ‘I thought the Dublin team already won it’ I hear you say?’ Well no they didn’t, that was the Leinster, again. By the time the first ball is thrown in on Saturday February 11th, it will be 2 months since any of these teams have played a championship game. Bit rid..

Premier League Team Of The Year…So Far

By Ryan Corry | February 9, 2017 | (No) | 2352
The 2016/17 season has seen a lot really interesting football played, a number of teams have adapted the modified version of 5 at the back with defensive wingers and top managers like Jose and Pep really struggled in the early parts of the season. Along with this, some stars are fading and some are beginning to shine. So with the busy festive period well and truly over and teams beginning to settle down we decided it was time to look into who the best players have been so far. It goes without sa..

Apps To Make Your Smartphone Even Smarter

By Andy Leech | February 7, 2017 | (No) | 1297
In the past decade, we as a species have grown a new limb. And no, this is not because of any transgenerational genetic damage due to exposure to nuclear energy. Nor is it due to generations of inbreeding. Nope, this new limb is a result of technology. Its name? The smartphone. Oh my, we cannot put these bad boys down. If you want proof of this, take a trip on any form of public transport. A man could literally hop onto a Luas wearing nothing but a soiled nappy, and nobody would notice. Everyone..

Choosing the Right Gym for Your Needs

By Annabel Hynes | February 7, 2017 | (No) | 2906
New Year’s Day is fading farther and farther into the past, and along with it many people’s resolutions. It’s easier to try eating healthier, or ditching the cigarettes, or becoming fitter early on in the year, when the experience is new and encouraging. As we transition from January to February however, those resolutions start getting more difficult – especially if you’re not getting the results you want. This is never more accurate than when people attempt to improve their fitness by..

The Worst Men’s Winter Fashion Fails – How to Avoid!

By Annabel Hynes | February 6, 2017 | (No) | 2471
Fashion is a tough nut to crack, especially if it’s not within the bounds of your admittedly limited attention span. For men and women, fashion can be a blessing or a curse. It is fun to pick and choose your own style, but make one wrong move and you go from cute and kooky to that weird guy who sits on a park bench and scares the pigeons. So what were the monumental catwalk messes of this season and the last, and how does a regular Joe avoid making the same mistakes? Currently Failing While we..

Is 2017 Really The End Of The Beard?

By Aoife Crilly | February 5, 2017 | (No) | 14575
Beards have been in fashion for the past few years. 2013 saw a stark rise in their popularity with many men choosing to put down the razor in favour of a more rugged look. Opinions on beards are very divided to say the least. People who don’t like beards often argue that they are too scruffy and unhygienic while many men and women who prefer facial hair believe it exudes masculinity and confidence. It seems like there is no in between when it comes to liking or disliking a beard. Whatever your..

The 2017 Six Nations – What are Ireland’s Chances?

By Andy Leech | February 4, 2017 | (No) | 943
Memories of beating all that the southern hemisphere had to offer in 2016 will mean that we Irish fans go into this Six Nations tournament with high expectations. Over the top of my pint cup, I watched in amusement as Ireland trounced Australia in the first half of their meeting last November in the Aviva. While the Wallabies came back strongly in the second half, they simply had no answer to the Irish for the first forty minutes of action. Looking around as men and women roared on the home team..
