"Hello hello!We are just back from a weekend in Rostrevor and although our bodies are sore and tired, we are still buzzing. Hopefully Monday will be kind to us.On Friday we started the trip with some great music and games on the bus and a bit of a party in the glamping pods where we were staying. On Saturday we spent the day sending Mega Mission, On The Pulse and some cheeky Bins Runs. We had the whole uplift booked out and the trails all to ourselves! Everyone attempted the tech trail On The Pulse, which was a big step up for a lot of people, well done to everyone! A couple of cased jumps resulted in broken wheels, but thankfully no broken people (except for the broken egos maybe). In the evening a "lift the cereal box with your teeth" game got so competitive we accidentally spent 3 hours stretching, and some flexible individuals got so far that there was no edge on the box left (basically they were trying to lick the bottom of the box off the floor - disgusting). After all the stretching our bodies were sorer than ever, so the Sunday red loop peddling was tough, but we were rewarded with some beautiful views of the Carlingford bay. Except for one descent (where some of our members decided that tumbling down a steep mossy bank is a better strategy than riding it), it felt like we were peddling uphill all day, even though we did more descending then climbing - next time we might try Round Wood for some better trails. We finished the day with the best hot shower of all time at the bike centre and finally headed home. A quick stop in IKEA because Isak was feeling homesick, a quick purchase of some spare tubes in Decathlon and before 10pm we managed to get back to the Boathouse, all sad the trip was over.Thanks to everyone for coming - what a great trip - great fun and great biking! Some amazing biking progress seen this weekend! Thanks to Jamie for being the bus driver and all our members who were helping to run things smoothly during the trip!Cannot wait to go again! Until then keep SENDING IT!"

"CUFL Premier Division SouthUniversity of Limerick 1-2 Trinity College DublinUL suffered their first defeat of the season as a 91st minute goal saw Trinity College take a vital three points with them back up the M7.This game was always going to be a close encounter as first played host to second with a win for either side crucial for their hopes of reaching the league semi-finals. The first chance of the game fell to UL after just two minutes. An attack down the right wing culminated with Cullen McCabe whipping a dangerous ball into the area. Dean Hegarty rose the highest at the back post forcing Trinity goalkeeper Lee Steacy into action.That chance would prove to be the only moment of note for some time as both teams battled to establish a foothold in the game. Trinity had the next chance of note when they picked up a loose ball in the 27th minute and raced towards goal. UL keeper Josh Coady spread himself well pushing the forward wide with his shot petering wide. The rest of the half remained an even affair with Trinity slightly edging it on chance creation but the stalemate could not be broken in the opening half.The wait for a goal wouldn’t go on much longer as UL were celebrating a goal just 34 seconds into the second moiety. Leon Ryan raced forward from kick-off playing the ball to David McCarthy who managed to poke it out to the left wing to Adam Foley.Foley burned his marker and reached the area unleashing a venomous shot on goal, Steacy was able to stop his effort but couldn’t hold on to the ball it spilled loose and Conor Butler made no mistake to put UL into the ascendency.The Shannonsiders wouldn’t hold the lead for long as Trinity drew level in the 52nd minute. UL lost possession from a throw-in deep in their opponents half, a long ball down field wasn’t dealt with allowing a Trinity forward in on goal. Coady made a fine save to deny the visitors but much like his counterpart he was unable to hang on to the ball and Trinity capitalised.It became apparent that neither side would be content to settle for a draw, it was end to end action for the remainder of the clash. UL created the next goalscoring opportunity in the 59th minute, Butler whipped the ball in from a corner with Conor Whittle popping up at the back post, he sent a half-volley goalward but Steacy was alert to the threat.Trinity created opportunities of their own as the match wore on but UL managed to keep things level through some last ditch tackles and fine goalkeeping.Football can be beautiful but it can also be very cruel and UL experienced the harsh side of sport today. Defending a corner in the 90th minute UL looked to break forward however the referee adjudged there to have been a foul as they played out on the far right of their box.Trinity sent forward their big men, the free was delivered to the back post, the first header was saved but it fell loose where it was bundled over the line. There was no time left for the home side to launch a fightback as they tasted defeat for the first time this season.UL now have a week off before the final game of the league season away to UCC. Only a win will do under the lights at the Mardyke if they are to remain in contention to reach the league semi-finals."

"What a weekend in Wicklow! As you may have seen on our socials, UL mountain bike had their first Wicklow trip back since the disruptions of the pandemic. On this weekend, the club travelled early on Saturday morning to Glencullen Adventure Park (GAP) and availed of uplifts for a fantastic day of downhill action. We found the GAP to be an amazing mix of flowing berms, tricky rock gardens, jumps and technical sections through some gorgeous forests overlooking Dublin city and the Irish sea. On day 2, after staying in a hostel the previous night, the club travelled to Ballinastoe woods, which is located in the heart of the Wicklow mountains. After a steep climb on some weary legs to begin the day, we were rewarded by some really well built trails on descent. These trails overlook the stunning Lough Tay, so we weren't disappointed by the views!We will be having more weekend trips away in the future, like the Rostrevor weekend, which will be happening in week 11, signups now open on the Wolves website!"
"CUFL Premier Division SouthUniversity of Limerick 1-1 TUS MidlandsUL battled back from a goal down to earn a hard fought draw against TUS Midlands in miserable conditions this afternoon on Maguires pitches.The hosts enjoyed the best of the early chances with a strong shot from Alex Sidorov testing the TUS goalkeeper inside the opening two minutes. Conor Butler was the next to try from range with his strike rising just over the bar with five minutes played.UL could very well have taken the lead after nine minutes when a long ball over the top caught the TUS defence off-guard, Oleg Vysochan raced on to the ball and poked the ball past the onrushing goalkeeper only to see a defender get back to clear the danger.The men from Athlone created the next chance, from a corner they powered a header goalward but Gavin Dillion was on hand to head away their effort. Another long ball from UL created the next goal scoring opportunity, Josh Coady launched the ball to the right wing where Nikodem Kozlowski controlled it with a deft touch, racing forward he was confronted by the TUS keeper who had advanced to try and clear the danger. The winger chipped the ball over his opponent and the shot went narrowly wide from an acute angle.UL were once again rueing their misfortune in the 31st minute when a quick freekick saw Vysocgan whip the ball into the box where Ciaran Jennings and Tom Carney rose to meet it unfortunately their combined effort saw the ball fizz past the upright. Both sides continued to press but the game was locked at 0-0 when the referee blew the whistle for half-time.The second half got off to the worst possible start for UL as they were reduced to ten men for an off the ball incident. This pivotal moment gave TUS a huge boost in confidence and they set about making the most of their numerical advantage. With 54 minutes on the clock the visitors were celebrating a goal however their celebrations were short lived as the flag was up for offside. UL were still rocked by the sending off and with 56 minutes on the clock TUS took the lead from an attack down the right that was tapped home at the back post.To their credit UL did not let this setback derail them and they immediately pushed for an equaliser. A 67th minute free-kick saw Tom Carney win a corner from the set-piece TUS cleared the first effort but the danger was not fully averted with Conor Butler popping up at the back post to head home the equaliser. Despite being a man down UL were not content to sit back and settle for a draw and they set about finding a winner. Substitute Leon Daly found himself in possession on the right wing, he jinked past his first marker and surged toward the area in between two TUS players as he did he was brought down just inside the box leaving the referee no option but to point to the spot with 76 minutes played.Unfortunately for UL their string of bad luck continued as their penalty effort crept just over the crossbar. Both sides continued to search for a winner but ultimately the deadlock could not be broken with the points shared.After three weeks of consecutive action UL now enjoy a week off before welcoming Trinity College to Maguires pitches in two weeks’ time."
"Last weekend 6 of our members have completed the two-day long Trail Cycle Leader (TCL) course. The TCL is part of the Mountain Bike Leader Awards (MBLA), which was developed to provide a framework and qualification for leaders to deliver mountain biking as a safe and enjoyable activity. The MBLA scheme provides training and assessment in mountain biking, leading and instruction skills. A TCL certification allows you to legally lead groups of 8 people on built trails up to 600m of elevation and 30 minutes walk from a rescue point.We have got a refresher on a lot of our leading skills and learned a few new ones too. We have practiced how to check bikes, set them up for individual riders, asses the riders fitness and ability, to teach basic skills to beginners and to read maps and navigate from a route card. By providing funding for this course we are hoping to improve the leader skill level within our club and in the mountain biking world! If you have missed out on this great opportunity to educate yourself and become a certified leader don't worry, we will be running another funded TCL course in the future. The exams take place in 3 months. Wish us luck!"

"CUFL Premier Division SouthSETU Carlow 0-2 University of LimerickUL recorded an historic first ever victory on Carlow soil seeing off their opponents 2-0 thanks to a goal in either half.Both sides took time to settle into the game as they got to grips with a strong wind, the first chance of note did fall to UL, Eoin Redmond flicked the ball towards the back post from a free kick with Adam Foley forcing a save from the keeper with ten minutes played.Foley again forced the keeper into action with 18 minutes gone, a through ball released Nikodem Kozlowski on the right wing, the Carlow shot stopper blocked his effort with the ball lopping back in to the mixer where Foley contorted his body to fire an overhead kick towards goal, a fingertip save ensured Carlow only conceded a corner.Just two minutes later UL had another fine chance to take the lead, Ciaran Jennings intercepted the ball in midfield and surged through a gap in the Carlow defence, as he raced towards goal the keeper rushed out, Jennings opted for an audacious chip lifting the ball over his onrushing opponent but just went over over the crossbar. The hosts knew they were riding their luck and moved up a gear capitalising on a sloppy touch on the right wing to fire a dangerous ball across the UL goal. From the resulting throw-in Carlow powered a header towards goal, it looked destined for the back of the net but UL captain Tom Carney was alive to the danger producing a stunning goal-line clearance to keep the sides level with 26 minutes on the clock.Two minutes later a speculative effort from a Carlow midfielder stung the gloves of UL keeper Eoghan Tinkler. After this purple patch for the hosts UL regained their foothold and created another glorious chance. UL broke from a defensive corner with Kozlowski winning possession, the winger showed superb instinct to flick the ball behind him straight into the path of the onrushing Redmond. The Carlow defenders had no chance of catching the Corkman but once again the Carlow goalkeeper produced a fine save to keep the sides locked at nil all.Redmond was at the centre of a fine team move that gave UL the lead right on the stroke of half-time. Winning possession in midfield he looked up and played Foley through on goal, as the Limerickman raced toward goal he looked up and slipped the ball out to the right to Kozlowski. The winger would have been forgiven for taking on a shot as he made his way towards the edge of the six yard box but he squared the ball to the back post where Conor Butler arrived to break the deadlock.Carlow the second half with the bit between their teeth eager to find an early equaliser but they failed to create any clear cut chances. In fact as they pushed to level proceedings they created opportunities for UL. Just six minutes into the second half Foley won a corner which saw a header go just over. With 53 minutes played Oleg Vysochan controlled a ball that was sent forward, the winger turned quickly made space for a shot and forced the keeper to make yet another fine stop.A second goal for UL looked more likely than an equaliser for Carlow and it arrived in the 59th minute. Eoin Redmond was again instrumental, he slid the ball behind the Carlow defence allowing Ciaran Jennings to bear down on goal. The Sligoman was unselfish and spotted Redmond who had continued his run, Redmond pulled the trigger hitting the keeper, the rebound fell straight to him and his next effort was directed into the net by a hapless Carlow defender.Substitute Alex Sidorov almost made an instant impact in the 61st minute, he played a fine ball in to Foley who teed up Jennings producing another good save from the Carlow shot stopper.Carlow continued to push for a route back into the game delivering some dangerous balls into the UL area but time and time again the back four and goalkeeper were able to clear their lines. The Shannonsiders were still creating opportunities with Mark Murphy the next player to show some individual skill. Winning possession the Limerick man dropped his shoulder to create space for a shot sending the goalkeeper scrambling as the ball fizzed just past the post in the 81st minute.The home side grew more and more frustrated as the final whistle drew near pushing bodies forward in search of a late flurry of goals. Even with five minutes of injury time they could not find a consolation goal with UL debutant Leon Daly producing the last real chance of the game. A rapid counter attack saw the right winger played in on goal, he took a touch before getting off a powerful strike but for one last time the Carlow keeper kept the deficit to just two.UL now have two wins from two games setting a strong foundation for the league campaign going forward. They welcome TUS Midlands to Maguries Pitches next Tuesday for the third game of the season. The Athlone side suffered a 3-1 loss the Carlow last week and take on UCC in Cork tomorrow afternoon."

"USPA Coach CourseOn August 26th, 3 of our club members travelled to Seville to gain coach ratings under the United States Parachute Association. Giving all the horror stories of airports, flights, missing baggage we were expecting a difficult travelling experience, surprisingly it went without a hitch, nobody left their passport on the plane this time. We jumped in our rental car and a short time later we were in Seville. The following morning, we were out of bed long before sunrise, the feeling before visiting a new drop zone is indescribable. We arrived at Skydive Spain and were checked in in no time at all, the noise of rolling hanger doors usually means one thing, jumping is about to begin. We got our names on the manifest and into the sky we went. Over the next two days we got well acquainted with skydiving at Skydive Spain, the aircraft, the landing area and met with some amazing people. We met with Marcus the course director on the fourth day, with his teachings and experience he taught us to be competent coaches over 3 days, from classroom theory to physical training aids and finally two in air evaluations. It was a difficult undertaking, but the sense of accomplishment upon completion was overwhelming. Completing the course signalled our final day at Skydive Spain, we got back in out car and made for the open road to the next stage of our trip, as it was late afternoon we didn’t need to rush so we took the scenic roads through the Spanish country side, two hours later on an unassuming road we crossed the border into Portugal, not long later thingsd to look just a bit familiar, we were on the road to E?vora home of Skydive Portugal, while the exhilaration of a new drop zone is indescribable, returning to one where you know of good people, good planes, good food and good vibes is euphoric. The sense of achievement on gaining our new rating did not truly hit until we filled in the check in documents, next to question “ratings” we were able to write “coach”. We were given a quick refresh on the drop zone, but we were already in a place where we belonged. Load number one of the day, we were in the sky and the rest is history."
"A huge congratulations to the thirteen UL Wolves who represented their country in a challenge series against Great Britain Tag last weekend.With seven players on the Men's Development team, led by Alan O'Brien, who also coaches in weekly in UL, and six on the Women's Development team, UL Wolves supplied the highest representation of any club in the country. This is a real reward for all the hard work that players and coaches have put in over the last few years, and a supplement to the large number of international players from the UL panel that played in either the International Tag Series or British & Irish Cup this summer. All of these players are now eligible to be selected for the Tag Rugby World Cup squads, at either U21 level or in the Open categories. With UL being the first northern hemisphere host venue ever, we're looking forward to seeing more Wolves in green on campus in August 2023.If you have dreams of representing your country, or just want to take up a new team sport and learn from those at the top of their game, join our training sessions on Tuesdays & Thursdays during the semester.

"CUFL Premier Division SouthUniversity of Limerick 3-1 SETU WaterfordUL got their league campaign off to a flying start with a hard fought 3-1 over SETU Waterford on Maguires Pitches this afternoon.The early chances of this encounter were created by the home side, a 5th minute corner reached the back post where Mark Murphy was on hand to send the ball back into the mixer resulting in Tom Carney forcing a save from the Waterford goalkeeper. The shot stopper was called into action again after 12 minutes when Cillian Duffy unleashed a venomous strike from the edge of the area, the keeper did well to deny this fine effort tipping it onto the crossbar.Against the run of play the visitors took the lead after 16 minutes. A speculative cross from the left was not dealt with by the UL defence allowing a Waterford attacker to head them into the ascendency.The Shannonsiders immediately set about finding a leveller and came close with 24 minutes on the clock. Joey Rushe was released on the right wing beating his marker before finding Murphy with a smart cutback, however once again the Waterford keeper was able to thwart the Limerickman’s effort. UL continued to push for an equaliser in the opening half but Waterford were content to sit back and absorb the pressure exerted on their defence keeping their lead intact until the half-time whistle.UL began the second half reinvigorated and came close to drawing level just two minutes after the restart. Theo Joyce evaded his marker, made space for a shot and whipped the ball towards the far corner of the net. The keeper was beaten but the shot curled just wide. Joyce was once again involved on 51 minutes, a Cillian Duffy throw-in supplied the Connemara man with the ball he drew pressure before laying the ball into the path of Eoin Redmond who lashed an effort just over the bar. Redmond forced a good save from the Waterford keeper again in the 54th minute as UL edged closer to drawing level.A set-piece routine in the 64th minute saw UL come agonisingly close to finding the net but once again their efforts were thwarted by Waterford. However their wait for an equaliser would not go on much longer. A rapid attack down the right wing saw the ball delivered at speed to the box where Adam Foley used all his experience of College football to bring UL level with a tidy finish with 66 minutes played.With parity restored the hosts could smell blood in the water and instantly took the lead. From kick-off Waterford looked to hold on to possession however an errant pass from their centre-back was intercepted by substitute Alex Sidorov who played the ball out wide, once again Foley was the man to finish the move sticking a leg out to guide the ball home with 67 minutes played.To their credit Waterford recovered from this hammer blow and created work for the UL defence with goalkeeper Eoghan Tinkler alert to several crosses whipped into this area from by the men from the Déise.As they pushed to find a way back into the game they left gaps at the back that saw UL create some half chances with substitutes Ciaran Jennings and Dean Hegarty putting in fine shifts to keep the Waterford defence on their toes.The third goal arrived in the 91st minute, as a Waterford attack broke down Eoin Redmond found himself in possession on the edge of his own area. Despite playing the full 90 the Corkman took off on a solo run taking the ball past all who could keep up with him, as he closed in on the Waterford goal he sought to send the ball low into the bottom corner of the net. A superb save denied Redmond a memorable goal but the keeper couldn’t hold on to his effort with the ball spilling allowing Sidorov to score the easiest of goals putting the result beyond doubt.UL showed great determination to fight their way back into this game to claim three important points. Their league campaign continues next week with a trip to SETU Carlow who were 3-1 victors over TUS Midlands this afternoon. "
"Hi everyone,This is just a short update email. Weekly Meeting Tomorrow evening at 6pm in KBG11 we will be having our weekly meeting. I will be giving a talk on the life and works of Russian Revolutionary and Marxist theoretician Nikolai Bukharin. Bukharin is a somewhat unknown figure amongst the broader left, which is unfortunate as he played a major role in the immediate post-revolutionary society of Russia. He also held quite a bit of power after Lenin’s death. Hopefully my talk will help to give you all a better understanding of Bukharin’s place amongst the Bolsheviks, and also his interesting and important contributions to Marxist theory.Cost of Living CoalitionAt 2pm on the 12th of November the Cost of Living Coalition will be holding a public meeting in the City Hall, with members of UL PBP in attendance. Further details will be sent shortly. Group Chat If you havent already, you can join the society whatsapp with this link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/D6hJSEZbaz57sH7knkFeXM-------Niall Gannon,Events Officer,University of Limerick People Before Profit Society"
