Here at Campus HQ we’re all about providing skint students with the craic they deserve to have, so we have TWO sets of tickets to give away to see Jason Byrne and Matt Richardson live in the Iveagh Gardens this Saturday night.
Ireland: A nation of talkers, yappers and chatters. You can’t keep us quiet sometimes. Except on certain subjects. We’re picky. Sure, we want to talk all about Garth Brooks, and Kimye’s arrival, but we don’t want to talk about mental health. It’s a taboo subject. One we don’t talk about, or shy away from.

This past weekend, The National played two dates at the Iveagh Gardens. Needless to say, they were fantastic. But there are two things that I need to confess prior to raving about just how good they were. First of all I had caught their gig at the 02 in November, and was left in no doubt that they were one of those bands that always struck a cord live. Then, just a week prior to this gig, I had gone to see Mistaken For Strangers, a film about the band, made by the lead singers’ brother Tom Berninger. (On another note… Go and see this film immediately if you haven’t!).
Sunshine brought good vibes to festival-goers at Longitude in Dublin’s Marlay Park this weekend. The three-day no camping festival is like a mix of Electric Picnic and Forbidden Fruit, the audience are an eclectic bunch when it comes to their taste in music, most of which you wouldn’t entirely see among the Top 40 charts, but would still feature acts that do pop up occasionally in that genre.
You are coming to Ireland soon to play a headline show in Dublin's Whelan's on July 24th.You are of Choctaw heritage and historically there is an intense bond between the Irish and the Choctaw people, who came to the financial aid of the Irish in an incredibly kind and profound act of humanitarianism during the Great Famine. Do you feel a particular affinity and connection to Ireland and The Irish?
So you’ve just started a new relationship. Everything that you have worked so hard for, all the late night texting, the playing it cool when it wasn’t cool, the patience, the “graft” it’s all paid off. First of all let me just say congratulations.
Now for the honeymoon phase. Shifting nonstop, going on about when you started to fall for each other and late night deep meaningful conversations. This is the business.
But is there any stage when you might turn around and say, “Jaysus, I haven’t talked to Tom/Sarah in a while?”
