Does size Really Matter…? Which Phone Suits You?

By Alannah Kenny December 2, 2018 (No)
In the past couple of years, we have seen phones change drastically. From touchscreen to face recognition and from Siri to having the phone actually make calls. The sizes of phones have also increased, and many have been worried that having a huge phone will be a inconvenience or like carrying a big brick around trying to make a call. Is that still the stigma we have around phones or has everyone suddenly decided to let that go as they stay buried in the newest technologies. Regardless of what the case may be, we are here to consider whether the size of a phone really matters and what’s the best […]

What Are the Costs of Building a House in Ireland?

By theSharpeUser December 1, 2018 (No)
The housing crisis is such a topical issue right now with people marching to the Dáil only recently over extortionate rent prices, students having nowhere to go and whole families, including young children, being evicted and forced onto the streets like the middle ages. With the government seemingly holding back for now on providing more capital for the development of properties, we at The Sharpe decided to do a bit of digging into what it costs to build a house in Ireland and for individuals and couples fortunate enough to be looking into it for themselves, the implications that may affect them also. The Housing Crisis Since the Celtic Tiger […]

Challenges Facing Novice Media Content Creators

By Alannah Kenny October 13, 2018 (No)
The words content creator may not be a new phenomenon. Online content creation however is reasonably modern and has spawned some of Ireland’s and the world’s top media influencers. You can be from any background and become an online hit by sharing your personality via any online platform. In saying that, content creators are prone to many challenges and face all kinds of criticisms for what they do. The reality is, it is now more than a trend but a craft finally coming to the fore. As a novice though, it’s pretty daunting right? You set up an account and look at that blank canvas with no idea where to […]

Should Men Use Fake Tan?

By theSharpeUser September 29, 2018 (No)
Should Men Use Fake Tan? What a question and what a topic. As the world we live in today becomes more image orientated and superficial, it’s only natural to ask whether men could do more to make themselves look better; whether it’s shaving/waxing their legs or using fake tan. Now, in my opinion, I feel you’ve got to do what makes you happy and what makes you feel good and if wearing fake tan does that for you, then, wear it, regardless of your gender. However, I know that people think that men wearing fake tan isn’t masculine and something that only women should do. In this post I will dive […]

By Tahlia Peppard August 8, 2018 (No)
Wicklow is a county in Ireland which is just south of the capital, Dublin. The region is full of amazing scenery, lush green grass (much like the rest of Ireland) and views that no camera could do justice too. Wicklow comes from a background of rich heritage, friendly communities and a wide range of cultural and sporting activities for the whole family to enjoy. This brings me on to the topic of discussion for today; great family fun things to do in Wicklow. 1.

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

By Darren Bates August 5, 2018 (No)
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 watching the Adam West batman show every Saturday morning (re-runs, I’m not that old!) in the mid 80’s (I’m 36, born 1982). It was super cheesy, but perfect for a […]
