Banksy has made Waterford his next passion project after his visit to the Gaza strip and can be seen throughout the city this weekend adding his famous thought-provoking graffiti pieces to the walls of Waterford.


Are you headed to the Aviva this Sunday for the rugby? Are you a man? Well then you can be part of a world record attempt. Guinness are seeking to register the highest presence of homoerotic behaviour at the Aviva as the match kicks off at 3pm. If you have an overactive and intense heterosexual love for our rugby players you could become a world record breaker. The more homoerotic the better.


The fuel laundering championships are back up and running in Louth this weekend. People from all around the boarder counties are urged to join in with the winner being rewarded for having the best illegal fuel. The Gardaí assure us this is not some elaborate hoax that they’ve organised but a legitimate event which will see no one arrested.


The Twisted Pepper on Abbey Street is hosting the trendiest banking inquiry after-party this Friday. €10 at the doors but well worth it as David McWilliams will be on the decks from midnight with a rip roaring set taking cuts from Karl Marx and Adam Smith. Rumour has it Paul Krugman might pop along too. Don’t miss it!
