The Irish Dark Knight Interview – One Of Ireland’s Leading Cosplayers

By Darren Bates | August 5, 2018 | (No) | 4524
With Dublin Comic Con just a week away, what’s more fitting than an interview with one of Ireland’s leading cosplayers, Alan Fay. Alan is extremely passionate about costume design, with a certain caped crusader being his number one. Luckily we’ve managed to nab the Irish Dark Knight himself for a good chat on his love of cosplay and everything in between. So, without further ado, let’s get started. 1. How did your infatuation with Batman come about? It started with watchi..

Zizzi Dundrum – Review

By Darren Bates | April 4, 2017 | (3 Comments) | 3804
I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to eating out in restaurants, I don’t mind telling you. Unless a restaurant comes highly recommended by a mate (who knows their sh*t) or via a TripAdvisor review, well then I’m probably not going to eat there. It’s not because I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth (far from it); it’s mainly due to the fear of having a bad meal after forking out 60 quid or so,  it’s my ultimate pet peeve. However, due to a lack of options, I do find myself havin..

Welcome back Conor McGregor Bandwagoner to another edition of the “Conor McGregor Bandwagoner’s Guide” and this time we’re pointing our peepers in the direction of UFC 209. UFC 209, which takes place in the early hours of Sunday morning in Las Vegas (for all of us watching in this part of the world), was set to be the biggest UFC event of 2017 by a country mile, but sadly the news broke, on Friday, that the eagerly anticipated matchup between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson is off...

The Biggest Snubs of the Golden Globes 2017

By Darren Bates | January 9, 2017 | (One) | 2574
“La La Land” was the big winner from the 74th Golden Globe Awards, notching 7 wins and surpassing the record of 6 set by “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) and “Midnight Express” (1978). But where there are winners, there are also losers! Here are some of the biggest, headline grabbing, upsets from last night’s Awards.

Round 3: The Conor McGregor Bandwagoner’s Guide To UFC 207!

By Darren Bates | December 29, 2016 | (No) | 4138
While Conor McGregor takes a well-deserved break from carrying the weight of the entire UFC on his shoulders, you, being a McGregor Bandwagoner (and trust me, there’s no shame in it), probably couldn’t be arsed watching any other lads (or ladies) bate the shite out of each other, but take my word for it – UFC 207 is an absolute must watch! What makes UFC 207 a must watch? The reason why UFC diehards and casual MMA spectators will be watching in their droves is for one reason and one reaso..

Hull, Swansea and Leicester – Why They’ll Be Relegated This Season!

By Darren Bates | December 15, 2016 | (No) | 1611
Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned relegation dog fight? Every game’s just more exciting when there’s a proverbial 6 points on the line, and although we’ve not even opened our Christmas presents yet, some Premier League teams are already making strong cases as to why they’ll be relegated this season. Although it’s by no means a foregone conclusion, here’s who we at TheSharpe believe will be playing in the English Championship come August 2017. Hull Newly promoted teams are alway..

Liverpool v Man United – Where Will You Be Watching?

By Darren Bates | October 17, 2016 | (No) | 1223
Is there any game, in English Football, more anticipated than Liverpool v Man United? We at TheSharpe don’t think so. A fixture that’s produced more highlights than ‘Reeling in the Years’, football fans will no doubt be tuning in in their droves come Monday night. Well, you may put a hold on that diet, ‘cause the fact that Liverpool v Man Utd is on Monday night can only mean one thing… Monday pints!
