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 take a look at these three new Marvel movies and what they have in store for us. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Release Date: May 5th If Guardians […]

phone size

Are you wondering how to get out of your mobile phone contract? You must be. If not you wouldn’t be here reading this! So, you’re probably pretty unhappy with the current contract you’re in and more than likely pretty desperate to break the contact some how. Phone companies tend to be extremely vague in advising how you can get out of a bill pay contract which makes a lot of sense because they want to keep getting your hard earned cash. It’s because of this you’ll find it very difficult to locate a clear guide on how to get out of the contract without it costing you a fortune. You might […]

2016 was many things, and not all of them good. What it did have going for it however was some truly brilliant music – and the Carpool Karaoke segment of James Corden’s Late Late Show put this into perspective, with musical guests that belt their songs proudly while driving alongside James on his commute to work. Who were the best (and loudest) of the bunch? Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato With conversation veering from Nick’s many dating exploits to the origin of DNCE’s song ‘Cake by the Ocean’, this outing seemed to have it all. James, Nick and Demi even start busking in the middle of an LA street, using […]

We Irish have a long tradition of emigration. For generations, we have abided by the old saying, “if you can’t stand the heat, find another kitchen. A kitchen that’s not as hot. A bigger kitchen. A kitchen where they all speak English, preferably”. While the emigrants of famine times were setting off on their journeys never to return again, that’s not the case for those who left when the recession hit during the late noughties. You had lads, whose only previous time on an aeroplane was a trip to Santa Ponsa when they were eighteen, jetting off to Dubai, Australia, Canada etc. Those chancers were only mad to come home, […]

Well 2016 with all your twists, turns and gasp aloud moments, thank you; hardly. So how was that? Or rather what hell was that? The ascension of, love him or loathe him, The Donald. Our nearest and dearest next door neighbour deciding to abscond from the European Union whilst whipping up a kerfuffle of chaos, much love Brexit. At home there was the interminable period of no government, maybe not much of a complaint to some, and the arrival on the international stage of two lads from Skibbereen who brought us all a bit of joy over the summer with their humorous tales of schteak, shpuds and general merriment in […]

It seems to be a rule in Irish culture, that there is always at least one aunt or grandmother that will consistently make a good-natured enquiry about your relationship status above all else, even your job, health or whether you actually enjoyed their Christmas pudding. If you’re a single pringle that may or may not be ready to mingle just yet, this process can be utterly gruelling, especially at Winter time, so how do you endure it? Get Away From The Small Talk Altogether Avoiding the tractor-beam stare of the relatives you only see twice a year isn’t easy, and obviously avoiding them – and other family members – isn’t […]
