It begins with a suspicion which slowly but surely festers into paranoia, and a sense that everything you do is off-putting or annoying to them. Of course, this isn’t always the case, but when you sense that your partner has lost interest in you and your relationship, the signs begin to reveal themselves gradually..

6 Healthy Alternatives to Your Morning Coffee

By Felipe Wasserstein | July 27, 2017 | (No) | 919
In this day and age, very few people’s mornings start without a generous helping of coffee; let’s face it, without caffeine, many of us would struggle to get out of the bed! What started out as a fad is now a main stay in Irish society and some could argue that we’re now a nation of coffee drinkers as opposed to a nation of tea drinkers (controversial)! However, coffee, and the amount of caffeine that’s in it, isn’t the healthiest thing you could be putting into your body and we’re h..

On The Mat – WWE Battleground 2017 Preview

By Evan Coughlan | July 23, 2017 | (No) | 1198
Firstly what a great name for a Pay Per View, Battleground, sounds important and impactful, however, there is one problem with Battleground and it has nothing to do with the name of the event. The problem is Smackdown is a bit shit right now and has been for a few months. It just seems like all the good momentum that Smackdown had going into Wrestlemania has been destroyed in the months since. This is really disappointing and unfortunately I don’t see it being a trend that WWE will be able to ..

How Would An All Irish Team Do In The Premiership – Part 1

By Ryan Corry | July 20, 2017 | (No) | 524
There are great arguments in life and sport that make for some great debate. From the simple yet effective ‘my da would beat your da in a fight’ all the way to ‘Celtic would challenge for the Premier League title’. There are just some things that we are never going to know the answer to so I’ve decided to apply my thought process on one question that I can’t help but wonder about… How would an all Irish selection get on in the Premier League?
