We certainly aren’t the only species to obsess over it, but we are the first to build industries celebrating and feeding off of this widespread fascination.

Voting, democracy, and elections; three words it’s fair to say that you wouldn’t associate with the younger classes of Ireland. It is difficult enough to ensure that the middle aged people in the country vote; never mind the young! However, last year saw a change in the norm of this country, as hundred upon thousands of young people descended onto the voting booths of this country to ensure their voices were cast in the marriage equality referendum.

But our reality of expectation is changing. We’d think this is for the better. We want to live in a world where women are free to develop themselves, follow their own paths in life and strive to being who they want to become, or at least having the chance to give their dreams a shot.

A job in a field that you’re interested in with a nice boss, friendly colleagues, a decent pay check and the weekends off.

In its simplest form the hipster is a person in their 20s or 30s that value independent thinking, counter culture, progressive politics, and an appreciation for art, indie-rock, creativity, intelligence and witty banter.
