Burke Panel: Solutions to climate change in a shrinking world

The shrinking world, as it comes into our view, has become an exceedingly prevalent matter as we draw closer to the year 2020. For a multitude of reasons, 2020 is the year in which we as inhabitants of this spinning rock must come to terms with the carbon footprint we have made. In the mere […]

What’s on: Theatre October to December 2017

Have you been a Jackeen all your life but never do anything cultural in your own city? Are you perhaps a fresher foreign to our shores and looking to immerse yourself in the arts? Are you sad that you missed the amazingly hip cultural event that is the Dublin Fringe Fest? Well do not fret […]

Stand up and be counted

There’s a certain transition for every first year that occurs during their first few weeks in college.

A letter to… my parents

Dear parents,   I sit writing this as I sip my skinny cappuccino in this new very hipster hidden gem I found on a corner of southside Dublin that you’ll never be able to find. It’s a college thing Mum; casual coffees and lounging lectures.   As another year of University begins in the big […]

Is violence the answer?

The Philosophical Society held their weekly debate on Thursday night, with the motion: This House Would Meet Bigotry with Violence.
