The Master’s Guide to 12 Pubs of Christmas

By Dean Fitzgerald | December 16, 2017 | (No) | 563
The 12 pubs of Christmas is a fairly recent phenomenon in Ireland, but has been established as a regular part of Christmas culture since it began. It’s a great way to bond with friends, colleagues, and teammates, especially given that at the end of the night, at least one person will inevitably be spewing like burst pipe. The thing about 12 pubs is because we expect that outcome, it’s seems less shameful when it happens. The main rule is simple: 12 pubs, 1 pint in each pub, all in one night...

We Need To Talk About ‘Ghosting’

By Dean Fitzgerald | November 15, 2017 | (No) | 637
Long gone are the days of courting a person you fancy for weeks on end, trying desperately to convince them to go out with you. Nowadays, people simply need to download an app, swipe right a few times, and bang! Conversations begin and romance blossoms. Or, maybe a few unsolicited naked photos, whatever takes your fancy. Ease Of Communication With the incredible ease of communication between potential partners also comes the ease of ending those communications. Many young people have experience..

A Graduate’s Guide to Making Friends In College

By Dean Fitzgerald | October 12, 2017 | (No) | 507
The beginning of college is exhilarating and terrifying. In the weeks building up to the start of first year, everyone you meet tells you it will be the best time of your young life. Nodding along and muttering something associated with ‘Can’t wait to start!’, the back of your mind niggles away at you – ‘Is college really for me? What if I don’t like my course? What if I can’t make friends?’ This enters almost every prospective student’s mind, so don’t worry too much. In fact..

5 Interesting Bets for Ireland’s Final World Cup Qualifiers

By Dean Fitzgerald | September 26, 2017 | (No) | 1569
It’s all come down to this. Massive performances, huge let downs, deeply annoying bad luck, all will be forgiven if Ireland were to overcome the odds and beat both Moldova and Wales to book a spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The likelihood isn’t exactly optimistic. Yet we wait with bated breath for the Boys in Green to give what they have left for the jersey and make us proud to be Irish football fans once again. Knowing the odds are stacked against the Irish makes it even more poetic, ..

Mayo VS Dublin All-Ireland Football Final 2017 Preview

By Dean Fitzgerald | September 16, 2017 | (No) | 6345
After 62 games, the inter-county football season finds itself at the finale. 33 teams began the season with mixed ambitions for the season. New York had a genuine belief of finally winning a championship game, Kerry began their campaign with confidence of ending Dublin’s grasp of dominance over the championship as they had done in the Allianz football league, and the Dubs and Mayo wanted to be back where they had been the year before. Only the latter of these three scenarios came true, with a..

10 Reasons Why Irish Football Fans are Still the Best in the World

By Dean Fitzgerald | September 1, 2017 | (No) | 901
Irish fans of all sports are very highly regarded on the world stage. We’re seen as the life of the party at a Conor McGregor fight, the loudest singing crowd in any given stadium, and everyone wants to be seen with the Irish fans for one reason or another. From Chile to Japan, Irish sports fans are extremely popular (except maybe in North Korea, but that’s hardly our fault now!). At any given time, Irish football fans are known for boisterous, good-natured support of their country. With cru..

The Kick Ass Guide To Inter Railing This Summer

By Dean Fitzgerald | August 2, 2017 | (No) | 725
The freedom, the independence, the adventure, inter railing really does have it all. Experiencing new horizons, seeing different, vibrant cultures, and partying til 5.30am and falling into the hostel you booked because it was super cheap and allows alcohol, inter railing really is the dream for young Irish people. Remember, whether you decide on a 2 week trip, or to just travel all summer, the key to having the best inter railing experience possible is in the details. Follow this guide to inter ..

How To Know When Your Partner’s Not Interested Anymore

By Dean Fitzgerald | July 31, 2017 | (No) | 790
The crushing blow of knowing that someone who you care about and have strong feelings for (maybe even love), doesn’t feel the same way about you anymore is a real slap in the face. 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..

Who and What Liverpool Need This Summer

By Dean Fitzgerald | June 25, 2017 | (No) | 695
After a somewhat tumultuous season, Liverpool ultimately achieved their prime aim of qualifying for the Champions League. While it is true that they failed in seriously challenging for any of the domestic competitions (apart from a semi-final appearance in the EFL Cup), Champions League qualification should be enough to satisfy the fanbase for now. However, if Jürgen Klopp’s charges are interested in winning silverware next season, there is a lot of work still to be done. In terms of targets,..

Manscaping… Should I?

By Dean Fitzgerald | June 24, 2017 | (No) | 831
Firstly, before we even start, what an odd question to be asking yourself. Do you not have more important things to be doing than worrying about shaving your balls? How did the title make you believe ‘yep, this is the article for me’? If that’s the big thing stuck in your mind, you’re either extremely lucky that this is a genuinely significant and prime problem in your life, or you’ve lost all sense of priorities and this is just a way of hiding from real responsibilities. My guess is ..
