Ireland host Pakistan in an historic first test match next May.
It really is a great day to be a Irish cricket fan. After being in the shadows for so long Ireland are now months away from being involved in the greatest form of the game and the pinnacle of cricket. A format that involves having great mental strength, the ability to bat for hours on end, and patience, when to play or when to leave or block. This is great news for the country and this is the best chance to try and get younger generations involved in the game and…Read
Uncharted The Lost legacy Review
Only last year the great folks at Naughty Dog brought out Uncharted 4 and in doing so it has raised the bar on what the ps4 is capable off with other titles like horizon zero dawn with some one the greatest views you likely to ever see in a video game ever.

What’s lit this fire under me is an item I saw on the ‘DJs of the Irish pirate radio era’ Facebook page proposing to set up a radio museum/gallery/exhibition in Dublin featuring pirate radio, encompassing all stations nationally and not just the Dublin ones, I assume.
