Six Nations: Undefeated Ireland take the Win

With the hangover well and truly over for many Irishmen, the Six Nations has once again left its mark on the wallets and liver of many. Especially if you’re English. Despite the tears of many who read this, we can’t conclude the tournament without a run-down what happened to whom, and why I became an alcoholic for over a month as a result.     Italy The fact that Italy are in the Six Nations has now become a perplexing thought for many, as the Azzurri once again came bottom with no wins, to no-one’s surprise.

KTV Film Festival: Restless

At almost 50 minutes long Restless is the longest film screened at the KTV Film festival by quite a bit, but it is well-paced, brilliantly acted and quite often, hilarious. It is one of the standouts in a line-up of great short films this year.

Every year, students submit their scripts and usually between 8 and 10 scripts are selected for production with KTV drama. This film is directed…
