We’re all Belfielders here. JayCarax was even responsible for the ‘Hidden History of UCD‘ blog, and all three writers have mentioned the college here in the past.
We’ve frequently written on the history of that ‘other’ Dublin college however, the one Henry Grattan faces on College Green.
The University Times, newspaper of Trinity College Dublin, includes a supplement in its latest edition on the ‘Trinity Year’, looking back on some of the big stories of the year in that college, and I thought the front page worth posting here. Mice Hell is the name in the corner.
It’s an excellent piece of illustration, and some of the stories featured in the work appeared on Come Here To Me over the year, such as the planned visit of BNP leader Nick Griffin to the college.
If you’re wondering what the various subjects featured are:
1) Alchemy Nightclub and the row around sexist advertising they found themselves caught up in. Many of the promoters involved were Trinity students.
2) The controversial ‘Trinity Frat Club’ which emerged, aping American student ‘culture’.
3) The Trinity student arrested for his role in the ‘Lulsez’ hacking probe.
4) Nick Griffin and his planned visit to Trinity College Dublin.
It’s been a good year for publications and student journalism in Trinity College Dublin, with the University Times to the forefront in national student media and the launch of Siren, a publication to celebrate International Women’s Day (and available to read in full here).
Just for the hell of it, here’s a list of some Trinity College related Come Here To Me posts:
1) The Trinity student who threw the Bowl of Light into the Liffey.
2) The George Salmon statue.
3) ‘Inside Trinity College’ (The Bell, 1942)
