Actions speak louder than tokens

Last weekend saw the marking of what has become one of football’s stand-out beacons of diversity: the wearing of rainbow laces. What this involves is, for one weekend and one weekend only, every player on every team from the Premier League down to university football re-lacing their trusty boots with multi-coloured laces in support of […]

DUFC lose thriller against Clontarf

DUFC’s Senior XV put in a strong performance away from home against Division 1A veterans Clontarf in a scintillating game on Saturday afternoon , but unfortunately came up short, losing 29-24. This fixture has been dominated in recent years by Clontarf and they appeared to be expecting a lot less of the students, who showed […]

Men’s Volleyball secure comeback win

  Trinity’s men volleyball team came back from one set down to beat Santry 3-1. Trinity started strong in the opening set and took a 3 points to 1 lead. Both teams exchanged points but Santry got the better of the longer rallies and tied the set at 10 points a piece. Santry had the […]

Trinity snatch last-minute bonus point in loss to Garryowen

Garryowen’s robust defence was the difference today as they triumphed over Trinity in an engrossing and high-scoring clash in College Park. While both sides enjoyed spells of fluid, attacking rugby, lapses in concentration by Trinity when defending allowed Garryowen to claim the spoils in a 37-28 victory.   Wearing rainbow-coloured laces to encourage LGBT inclusivity, Trinity […]

Trinity Men’s Basketball lose to powerful Dundalk

Trinity Men’s Basketball suffered a hard-fought 72-87 defeat to Dundalk Institute of Technology (DKIT) last night in the Trinity Sports Centre, with the match being marred by verbal disputes both before and after the game.   Trinity began the match in a good manner, playing some attractive, free-flowing basketball that seemed to surprise DKIT, who […]

The game was played under the floodlights in College Park on Friday night.   Niamh O’Kelly Lynch was the hero for Trinity as she scored all four tries on the night, which were enough to see […]

What next for the Ireland team?

  “To stick the boot in and kick players and staff when they are down is bang out of order”. These were the words of a distraught James McClean in the wake of last night’s disastrous 1-5 defeat to Denmark in the Aviva Stadium. He’s probably right.   If there’s one thing we always say […]

Ultimate Frisbee: Trinity’s best kept secret?

Things kicked-off in early October with the Women’s team winning the first tournament of the year, The Cork Open.

Keep it in the country

Until last February I was ignorant to the existence of League of Ireland football; I mean I knew there was a League in Ireland but that was about it. With Premier League football on television being such a rip-off and even decent seats in the Aviva starting to look a little steep, I found my […]
