Trinity men’s rugby team suffer a heavy defeat to Lansdowne

Trinity’s disappointing start to the 2017-18 Rugby season continued today with a heavy 52-12 home loss to Lansdowne in College Park.   This is the third loss in a row for this young Trinity team who have yet to win a match this year in Division 1A of the Ulster Bank League.   Lansdowne entered […]

Running Well

My faded runners make a distinctive “thwack” when they hit the pavement. Usually my iPod smothers the solitary noise but the summer dusk is too fragile to interrupt with the usual mix of OutKast and Gorillaz. Running has always been my way of exercising, and  it offers a chance to think. My passion, and poison, […]

Head to head

Put away your swimming costumes, no need to worry about burning or freckling as autumn is well and truly here, if the rain hadn’t already tipped you off. With autumn — or should that be fall, in keeping with the American theme — begins a new American National Football League season, full of hope and […]

Trinity start Division 1A campaign with a defeat to Terenure

  Trinity started their Division 1A rugby campaign with a frustrating 0-24 loss to Terenure today in a drizzly and overcast College Park.   Trinity also opened last year’s campaign with a match against Terenure, beating them 25-18 in the first game after promotion to Division 1A, showing that they could compete with the top […]

Raising the bar

  It is hard not to be impressed by Aoife O’Sullivan, an Irish powerlifting record holder for her weight – having deadlifted 160kg, almost two-and-a-half times her body mass – who claims she only took up powerlifting by chance, and still insists that her academic life comes first. The care-free JS Irish and French Student […]

Town walks and country walks

Health and Wellbeing   I have always loved being outside. I grew up in a house skirted by woodland; our garden backed right up onto the treeline. An inordinate amount of my childhood and teens were spent wandering around this wood and the rest of the countryside around my home. My parents were happy to […]

DUEC “slay” at Intervarsities

I can’t tell if they are enthusiastic to be interviewed, buzzing from their recent win, or just happy to see their friends again, but they certainly livened up the office on a rather dull Thursday afternoon.   “If we’d come last this weekend, I still think we’d still all come away absolutely thrilled that we’d […]
