28th Sep Bridge is back! Bridge Society
 

It is a new year and that means more bridge to play! We are back with our weekly game on a Wednesday from 4-6pm. It is in CG01(Henry Grattan) which is at the opposite corner to the entrance to the building on the ground floor.

All levels are very welcome, don't be afraid to come along if you are interested but have no idea of the game. We teach people from the very start and the majority of our members are newcomers to the game. Feel free to come along any time between 4 and 6 and we'll sort you out with a game.

Hope to see you there!

23rd Sep Tournament Winner - Week 1 Poker
 

Congratulations to our first tournament winner of 22/23: @ciarantm96!

The Poker Gods graced Ciarán on Monday, with several big hands falling into his hands - including knocking out the chairman with #DeathByQuads at the final table. 

We had a very successful first tournament of 22/23 on Monday night, with 15 players hitting the felt for what turned out to be a fun evening of good poker.

Next week marks the start of our new Monday Tournament Series in Cuilín KA113 (this will be our new regular venue for game nights, due to an increase in membership this year. It is much more roomy, so hopefully we won't be falling over chairs trying to get around!) at 5pm.
Registration opens at 4.30pm, and will be open until the end of the break at 6.45pm, so if you can't make it for 5, don't fret, there's still time for you to jump in.

The series will tally both attendance and results over the course of the series - with you earning more points the more you play, and the higher you finish. At the end of the semester, our Top 16 players will play in the Series Final, where there will be prizes to be won. We may even break out the proper table for that!
The series games will be capped at 5 tables, due to equipment limitations.

So we hope to see you on Monday from 4.30pm in KA113. Until then, as always...

May the Flop be with you!

21st Sep Launch of our DCU 24/7 Bus Campaign Ogra Fianna Fail Society
 

We launched our campaign calling on Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan to provide DCU with a 24/7 Bus link to the city centre!

  • DCU is the largest college in Dublin without a direct public transport link to the city centre 24 hours a day.
  • Students need safe and cheap transport links from the city centre back to their accommodation around DCU late at night.
  • By making the 11 bus route a 24/7 service, students returning to Drumcondra and Glasnevin would have safe, cheap and environmentally-friendly transport late at night.

Sign our petition at our Recruitment Stand, join us today and follow our social media accounts for updates on this vital campaign!

18th Sep DCU AC return at Griffith Avenue Mile Athletics Club
 

The Griffith Avenue Mile returned today with hundreds of athletes across all ages taking on the renowned course. 

The race first took place back in 1983 and was known as the 'Dublin Straight Mile'. That year it was won by South African-born American Sydney Maree, in a blistering 3.49.30. 

Leading Irish athletes such as Eamonn Coghlan were in the field that day, and Ray Flynn ran strongly to finish third. 

The race was revived in 2019 but has been postponed ever since due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year it made a welcome return, bigger and better than before. 

DCU are one of the proud sponsors of the race and being so close to all of our campuses, a number of our athletes who are more used to running the metric mile or longer donned the blue and yellow singlets for the first time this season. 

Men's captain Michael Murphy who is better known as a 5000m runner stepped down in distance to see what he could do. 

The result? An impressive time of 4:18, good enough for second place in the race for the Tullamore AC and Joe Ryan coached athlete. Michael finished behind Hiko Tonosa of Dundrum South Dublin who recently competed at the European Championships over 10,000m.

Paul Morgan ran well to finish in 12th in 4:46, while Barry Clavin was 21st in 5:04. 

Training is back in full this week ahead of a busy year ahead. All training in DCU Sports Grounds unless otherwise stated. Full schedule below:

Sprints/Hurdles - Monday @ 5:30pm and Wednesday @ 2pm

Long Jump/Triple Jump - Tuesday @ 6pm
