Irish businesses are heading into an exceptionally tough time right now. Not only have retailers and restaurants battled to reopen in some way, shape or form over the past few months, but tonight they learned they would have to close under level 5 restrictions. Now, I'm very aware that just recently, I wrote about how to shop on Amazon.co.uk...

Facebook To Ban QAnon Across All Platforms

Facebook is a powerful platform. If you've watched The Social Dilemma, you know how it works despite Facebook disagreeing. But for along time, a debate has raged and a question has been left unanswered. Is Facebook a publisher? You might wonder why it matters, but this is huge. If Facebook is considered a publisher, they are responsible for what...

Bookapitch – Book Your Weekly 5-A-Side Online

How many of us play a weekly 5 or 6 a side? Probably plenty. It's painful to organise at the best of times, let alone these days. Trying to arrange a pitch, collecting cash to pay the venue and all that, whoever has ever been the coordinator for a group game knows the pain. Then when it comes to...

Trump Administration To Ban TikTok

Lads, 2020 is the year that just keeps on giving.

Writing this post is a big old gamble. I don't think TikTok is going anywhere anytime soon, but the United States has fixed crosshairs on the Chinese social media platform, just like they did with Huawei.

25 May 2018 was one hell of a day for Ireland. We Repealed the Eighth Amendment and paved the way for the women of Ireland to have bodily autonomy. It was a massive stride forward.

A couple of things have happened in isolation. I'm sporting a beardstache, I've forgotten how airports work and I've developed a taste for craft beer. To be honest, I had really developed a taste for craft beer before isolation hit and even started a website just to talk about beer. The cool thing about getting into craft beer in...

Which Companies Have Stopped Advertising With Facebook?

#StopHateforProfit
You know why fines exist, right? If you do something wrong and are told you're wrong, there's a fair chance you'll do it again. If you're hit in the pocket, you're less likely to re-offend.
