Hasta la pizza, baby

The Dough Bros fire up new ovens in a new location

Local foodies were thrown into disarray when the Dough Bros announced that they would be closing the doors of their beloved pop-up.

The wood fired pizzeria opened almost two years ago, and following a whirlwind romance with pizza lovers nationwide, the Bros have decided to shut operations on Abbeygate Street Upper ahead of a game-changing move. This week, Eugene and Ronan Greaney, the Galway brothers behind what has become one of the most popular eateries in Ireland, explained why last Sunday was the perfect time to serve the last slice… for now.

Feeling Fresh after Freshers?

So now that college has started and the stress of timetables and finding lecture halls has died down, Fresher’s Week has finally come crashing to a halt. Most likely you’ve come crashing in behind it and already whispered those four magical words “I’m never drinking again”… it’s time to get back on the grind and pick up the pieces of a week that’s left you broken, beat and scarred. It will be hard, there’s no point on denying it but the rewards will be worthwhile.

Over the summer, you’ve put all the work in behind the scenes. You’ve done the hard part, you’ve given yourself a solid foundation and now it’s time to put some mass on that summer bod. University timetables are usually anti-gym. They have you waking early, and leaving late with huge gaps in between for no apparent reason. Study? Maybe? But it’s only Week One?

Super-Size Me, College Gains and 3 Important Lessons

How to avoid gaining weight in college while trying to gain knowledge!

With September only around the corner, students across the country will be accepting their college places, struggling to find accommodation, packing their whole lives into suitcases and preparing to leave home… only to return at the weekend. I can already smell the Sunday roast! Although many will be returning for their second or third years, or fifth if you’re me, Fresher’s Week always has something new in store and is an opportunity that cannot be missed.

With college comes temptation. And lots of it. There’s late-night movies with casual drinking, even-later-night parties with cocktails, DMC’s with bar drinking and loud music, power naps, the lads and the social scene in general is not something that many new students anticipate when they arrive in their new city. It’s a whole new world. It’s looking out over Pride Rock, pretending you’re the Lion King and then actually becoming him as the year progresses.

All your hard work during the exams, all those extra hours in work, all the stress that you didn’t need has led to this moment. You’re now officially a student, CONGRATUWELLDONE!

However, with more temptations comes more disruptions and is losing your summer bod really an option?

Food Food Everywhere… but not a bite to eat?

Clean eating? Meal plans? Starvation? What exactly do they mean?

Okay. First things first… I’m the realest. The realest picky eater ever. Yep. I don’t like red sauce (ketchup!), most sauces for that matter give me the heebie jeebies, I avoid cheese at all costs, I don’t eat pizza, I’m pretty conservative at Chinese takeaways and even more so in Indian restaurants. I only recently accepted that mayonnaise on deli sandwiches is inevitable too.

The struggle is real.

However, I have no such problems when it comes to sweets. Chocolate. Chocolate fudge. Chocolate fudge cake. Chocolate fudge cake with ice-cream. Chocolate fudge cake, ice-cream anddd… you get the idea! There is nothing I can’t do when it comes to sugary deliciousness.

Nothing. But I do have a choice.
