Capping Show Review: Campus Watch

Posted 1:21pm Sunday 17th May 2015 by Maya Dodd

Rating: 4/5 As a seasoned attendee of The Capping Show (seasoned may be a little too generous a term — I’ve only been to three), I was expecting big things. If the renowned humour associated with the comic event failed to brighten the gloomy pit in which I am currently residing, I was Read more...

Outside Mullingar

Posted 4:35pm Sunday 22nd February 2015 by Bridie Boyd

Rating: 3/5 Outside Mullingar has too many faults to be more than average. The plot is classically Irish, with rain, farms, endless tea and family feuds in abundance.
