This past weekend, March 24-25, saw Dublin’s first ever Model United Nations (MUN) conference take place, organised by Trinity’s Society for International Affairs (SOFIA).

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 […]
