Both Guardiola and the FA should practise what they preach

One of the most talked about stories this week in the world of football was the disagreement between Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, and the Football Association (FA), particularly their chairman, Martin Glenn. The mastermind behind the Tiki-Taka style of play has been wearing a yellow ribbon on his jacket during City’s matches. It was […]

Trinity American Football lose in low-scoring affair

Trinity American Football got off to a poor start to this season with a 16-11 loss to UCD on Sunday afternoon.     The offense started poorly, with UCD bringing intense pressure and forcing a fumble which they returned for a defensive touchdown. Trinity’s defense struggled throughout the game to bring UCD’s quarterback and running […]

A Competitive Mudbath

Mud, sweat and tears were shed on the Trinity Sports grounds in Santry on Saturday, March 3rd, at the annual IUAA Cross Country Championships, an event not for those faint of heart (or leg). Trinity’s own DUHAC were the hosts of the day, which turned out to be an astounding success for all involved, with […]

STEM, self-efficacy, and sport

In the past, sport was traditionally seen as the domain of men. Even today, there is a gender discrepancy in participation and intensity: men are more likely to play sport, and more likely to devote significant energies to it. This difference is neither good nor natural. But in order to consider why it’s not the […]

Transfers and title challenges: League of Ireland preview

A few months ago I wrote a piece asking students looking for a cheap alternative to the Premier League to give Ireland’s domestic league a chance. The Premier Division of the League of Ireland season kicks-off on the 16th February and to prepare you for the new season I think it’s important to understand how […]

MMA: a game of risks

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is one of the fastest growing sports on earth. It’s boxing, wrestling, kickboxing, karate, and more all mixed into one, which gives it a wide base of appeal. It also happens to be first-class entertainment, even for those of us whose usual punching target is the air directly above our heads. […]

Striking Out

Ian Garry is an amateur MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter with big plans. He’s young, confident beyond his experience and obsessed with fighting. At 6 foot 3 inches tall and weighing 81kgs, Garry drops 4kgs to fight at Welterweight (where the maximum weight is 77kg). 20 years old and chomping at the bit, he cannot […]

Pride in what you do

  LGBTQ+ representation and discrimination in sport, specifically soccer, is one of the hot-button issues in sport right now — something I touched on in my last article for this newspaper. In fact, writing that piece, and the research I did in the process, piqued my interest so much that I decided I wanted to […]

Strong rebounding sees DCU past Trinity

Strong offensive rebounding as well as commanding performance by DCU (Dublin City University) point-guard Tiffany Corselli saw off a generally defensively-sound Trinity side in the Sports Centre last night.   DCU came into the game as National Cup champions after beating Glanmire on Sunday.   While DCU edged Trinity in shooting percentage, it was their […]
