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 […]

Forget calorie counting and love fat!

Are you tired of eating tiny portions, counting calories and eating bland food every time you try and lose weight? How would you like to hear about a diet where you can eat bacon and eggs for breakfast, Boojum for lunch and steak for dinner? Absurd right? “It doesn’t exist,” you might exclaim. Wrong. Ladies […]

Bowling over the Creases

  “By dragging their friends down to Ancillary Hall and College Park, the new committee made Trinity women’s cricket something fun and approachable.”   The Cricket Club is one of the oldest sports clubs on campus, and an iconic part of Trinity’s history. The women’s club has been part of this for almost half a […]

Sport has played a big part in the life of Róisín Harbison. From a young age, her mother, an interprovincial squash player, and her father, an […]

Play like a girl: Ladies GAA

How did you get into playing ladies football?   D: My town […]

Aikido for All  

  Aikido is relatively obscure even now, despite the fact that Charmed character Prue and The Walking Dead‘s Morgan are known practitioners of the martial art (in fictional universes), as is the film star Steven Seagal. Aikido clubs are usually hidden within college campuses, attracting only those who actively seek them. This wasn’t true for […]

Climb that wall! Build That Wall! – and make the Provost pay for it

For all of Dublin’s housing problems, it has always accommodated my fear of heights. The highest peak I typically reach is the fifth floor of the Arts Block and, even then, the view isn’t exactly what one would call dizzying. I like to think of myself as a down-to-earth person, meaning I stay as close […]

Talking about fight club

  “Some people get punched in the face once and won’t come back, some people just get a feel for it. It’s perfectly normal not to want to get punched in the face”   “He’s a southpaw and I hadn’t copped it,” he says as he pushes his chair back from the table, the better […]
