BookCrossing.com is a fantastic website for book lovers looking for a way to share their favorite books and promote reading. Simply [...]
Marvel has given us superheroes like Spider-man, The Hulk, Iron Man and collectively The Avengers, so where does an Irish female Marvel superhero called ‘Shamrock’ from Dunshaughlin fit into all this? She’s real, she’s green, and she’s extremely lucky. Molly Fitzgerald’s superpower is luck, obviously. Her father was a militant Irish nationalist who brought his son up to the Northern Ireland mountainside to ask the gods to grant his son the power to defeat his enemies. This ‘power’ seemingly decided it would be better off in the hands of a [...]

Super Bowl Sunday is almost upon us and our fair city is joining in on all the madness by showing the Super Bowl in various pubs across the city.

Last night Ricky Gervais hosted his third and final Golden Globe Awards ceremonies and he finished his run with an even more impressive and funnier performance than previous years. Ranging from slightly awkward to terribly funny the comedian kept the A-listers on their toes throughout the night with his usual tirade of “love it or hate it” comedy. A sample of the entertainment on show included his colourful introduction of Academy Award winner, Colin Firth: “What you don’t know is that he’s very racist. Very. And I mean, really nasty [...]
