The Microwave of 4017

  Deep in the bowels of the Arts Block, a war wages. A battle of rights. A need for freedom and justice : the fight for readily available electromagnetic radiation for our leftovers.   In an effort to increase student spaces across the Trinity Campus, Room 4017 was allocated on a 1 year trial basis […]

Smuggler’s Soul: the shocking story of Veerapaan

On a random visit to the Lush store near college, continuing a light-hearted conversation with my friend, I entered the store. I had never imagined that as I walked out, my mind would be in a whirlwind of emotions – surprise, curiosity, disappointment, anger and sadness. I was surprised to see a familiar name, a […]

A Letter to my Sixth Year Self

Dear Sixth Year Me,   I know you’re terrified. With mock exams, sraithpictúirs and debs’ dresses, you have enough going on without the added pressure of trying to choose which university and which subject will become the centre of your universe for the next few years of your life. I know your heart is set […]

My experience as… A Mature Student

First things first: I feel far more comfortable when I use ironic quotation marks around the term in question. I’m a “mature” student – a non-traditional student. I didn’t get my poop in a group enough to go to university immediately following the traditional final year exams. In my case, high school was in the […]

The life and legacy of Barbara Castle

International Women’s Day was celebrated this a few weeks ago and it seemed only fitting to ask ourselves about the great women leaders of the past, for inspiration for the future, and to see what we can aspire to today. Barbara Castle was a British MP under the Wilson government. The choices she made affect […]

Magnified Societies: Vis Arts

    Since 1966, Trinity’s Visual Arts Society, or VisArts, has been bringing students together to appreciate the wonders of the artistic world. Throughout its sixty years, the society has celebrated artistic culture, and is a hidden gem within the packed society scene in Trinity. It provides an outlet for students who may not be […]

Alternative Study Spots

Accents, Stephen Street Lower   “It’s great for people-watching and there’s no pressure on any customer to vacate their sofa spot – not even for a die-hard hipster.”   Sure, it’s no longer a secret hipster haven, but the sofas are wonderfully comfy, the WiFi is top notch and the edible offerings are tasty and […]

Why you should meditate your way towards your degree

Last September, we decided that second year would be the year we would get “involved”, as many students do. Granted, this was a very vague goal and we weren’t entirely sure what this so-called “involvement” would entail, but in the end we made it work.
