Anonymous thoughts on.. TCDSU

What’s been firing up the kids lately? Climate change? Blasé. Trump? Dead horse. North Korea? God, I hope not.   No, nothing gets the ball rolling in student circles more than the friendly faces down at House Six. But since only the loudest voices get heard, which in this day and age are the people […]

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 […]

Starry night at Van Gogh premiere

It was a night filled with wine, bacon fries and of course, Van Gogh. On Monday, at 6pm, I found myself on the top floor of House 6, sipping on a glass of red wine with a few friends. But that was only the early stages, and the night was still young.   The Visual […]

Less chaos, more to experience

As the dust falls on the now distant memory of Freshers’ Week many of us have now started to turn away from society events and nights out and retreat to the hallowed halls of the Usher and Berkeley to make a start on that reading that we’ve promised ourselves we will actually attempt this year.

A time for change?

Last night’s Hist debate on whether or not the two state solution between Israel and Palestine should be abandoned promised to be an intense one, and it certainly did not disappoint.
