If you are struggling, we’ve made a few suggestions that we think are well worth a listen. Check them out! An Irishman Abroad Hosted by stand up comedian Jarlath Regan, An Irishman Abroad is a weekly podcast which comes in the shape of a long form interview with an Irish person or someone of Irish heritage who has achieved re..

On The Mat – WWE Payback 2017 Preview

By Evan Coughlan | April 30, 2017 | (No) | 3505
In previous years, the WWE have come out of Wrestlemania with all the momentum in the world, only to somehow manage to blow it before the next pay per view comes around. Thankfully, that’s not to be the case this year as they’ve managed to keep people’s interests going into Payback, this Sunday, and this is in no small part to the momentum that Braun Strowman currently has after his destruction of Roman Reigns. This, combined with the media grabbing stunts the WWE have had Strowman pulling..

2017 World Snooker Championship – Preview

By Evan Coughlan | April 12, 2017 | (No) | 3890
This year’s World Snooker Championship marks the 20th anniversary of Ken Doherty lifting the title when he defeated Stephen Hendry 18 – 12. Following that famous win for ‘Crafty Ken’, snooker has experienced a dramatic dip in terms of the popularity of the sport. Long gone are days of the sport’s flashy players with big personalities like Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins or Jimmy ‘The Whirlwind’ White. In their place are players who show very little, if any, personality and are ext..

Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather – Who’s Got More To Lose!

By Evan Coughlan | March 28, 2017 | (No) | 3117
Ever since Conor McGregor billion-dollar-strutted his way out of the Octagon in November 2016, after becoming the first two weight world champion in UFC history, he has had a lot to say about the man he wants to fight next. You’d be forgiven for thinking ‘The Notorious One’ wanted to complete his trilogy with Nate Diaz or move up another weight division and take on Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, but no, McGregor has his sights set on another man, in another sport entirely! And that man ..

On The Mat – WWE Fastlane 2017 Preview

By Evan Coughlan | March 5, 2017 | (No) | 2144
It may not seem like it but, yes we are actually on the road to Wrestlemania and we only have one more pay per view before the ‘Showcase of the Immortals’ takes place in April. With previous years, Fastlane acted as a buffer for all of the various storylines that were being hyped up before the big one. In both 2015 and 2016, the event was used to tee up number one contender spots for title shots, however this time we have a match that may actually see the heavyweight title change han..

Can an English Club Win the 2017 Champions League

By Evan Coughlan | February 14, 2017 | (No) | 1572
THE CHAMPIONS! Ah the Champions League last 16, the round where the competition finally gets interesting after the somewhat predictable group stage of the tournament. In saying that, one team nobody thought would get this far are the Premier League Champions Leicester City. The Foxes have defied everyone’s expectations (well expect Gary Lineker’s) and have qualified for the last 16 of the competition along with fellow English clubs, and regular visitors to this stage of the competition, Arse..

On The Mat – Elimination Chamber 2017 Preview

By Evan Coughlan | February 12, 2017 | (No) | 1766
The Elimination Chamber match was introduced in 2002 by then Raw General Manager, Eric Bischoff, and some 15 years later the Chamber match is still going strong with it’s seventh installment kicking off tonight in Phoenix, Arizona. Now while we’d like every match to take place inside the structure that houses 2 miles of chain, only the main event for the WWE championship will do so this time around. The WWE have put together an intriguing card for this Smackdown exclusive pay per view so..

Must-See Marvel Movies Coming Out This Year

By Evan Coughlan | January 31, 2017 | (No) | 1612
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is something to behold. Over the years, there’s been, what seems like, hundreds of Marvel movies. Some good, some great and, well let’s face it, the occasional stinker (I’m looking at you 2013’s The Wolverine). The Marvel juggernaut doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon though, with three cinematic releases due to hit our screens this year; the most movies Marvel have released in a single year since the inception of the MCU in 2008. Let’s tak..

Boojum Abbey Street – Review

By Evan Coughlan | January 24, 2017 | (2 Comments) | 6851
There are quite literally hundreds of places to get grub in Dublin City Centre, but when I eat somewhere I think it’s so important that 1) the food is good (well duh!), 2) the staff are friendly and 3) that it’s good value for money. I recently ate at Boojum on Abbey Street and I have to say it ticked all of these boxes. The Food Okay, if all you eat all day, every day, are your Mammy’s Sunday dinners, which consist of half boiled veg and bone dry meat, then Boojum isn’t for you ‘cause..

5 Apps to Help You Get a Better Night’s Sleep

By Evan Coughlan | January 20, 2017 | (2 Comments) | 3266
Can’t sleep won’t sleep, can’t sleep won’t sleep. Sorry that’s probably not helping. Let’s be honest, sleep is the best, and we as human beings need at least 8 hours of it a night, or else we start acting nuttier than a squirrel’s sh*t. Most people have no trouble nodding off at night, but there are those of us who struggle quite badly when it comes to catching those all-important z’s. Unfortunately, if you’re reading this article, it probably means you’re a bad sleeper, but ..
