Review: ‘Someone You Love’ photography exhibition

Down the crooked roads which trail off Camden street, I find myself passing an endless stream of quaint brick houses, remnants of Dublin’s Georgian past. The area which surrounds the Copper House Gallery is authentic, antiquated one could say. Smoke hangs in the air, belched from the mouths of a sea of chimneys straight from […]

Five eats for a fiver

Finding something to eat between lectures that won’t break the bank and is also close to college is a struggle for many freshers.

TCDSU’s Know Your Union Week

A spicy review of spicy burritos

  Mexican rice, pinto beans, chicken, plenty of sour cream, cheese – the staple of my student diet.       Burrito bars have taken Dublin by storm and have established themselves as a cornerstone of student food and socializing. To say that I like burritos would be to say that Cristiano Ronaldo likes the […]

Diary of a Fresher

  Friday 23 September Yasmin Underwood, Junior Freshman English and Classics:      Moving from the forty-degree heat in the sandpit that is Dubai to the quaint metropolis of Dublin which features (what feels like) sub-zero temperatures has certainly been interesting, and has involved more than just a shock to my core body temperature. Having had […]

Diary of a Fresher

Thursday 22 September   Étáin Sweeney,  Junior Freshman Law and Political Science: Thursday was kicked off by the infamous ‘Fresher’s Flu’ pestering my sleepy head in the early hours of the morning.
