House Parties vs Clubs

Enter into a world in which floors and fingers are sticky, decent shoes will be made filthy, clothes will be sloshed with beer and elbows will be plunged into vulnerable places. Darkness will be pierced by the intermittent blink of colourful lights. The repetitive beat of music will drown out your best attempts at conversation, […]

Refugee Week not a priority for the SU and students

“You only leave home when home won’t let you stay.” These are the words of Warsan Shire, a British/Somali poet, that echoed throughout The Attic on the final morning of Refugee week.

Pulp fiction at the Lighthouse

As the dark evenings stretch longer and longer accompanied by the bitter frost of winter nights, I’ve slowly discovered that my will to “go out” is diminishing alongside the dusky and mystic weather of autumn.   No longer was I prepared to face the streets of Dublin, clad in a frock and heels- at least […]
