Time Out/Entertainment

Among the many services the Students' Union provides is entertainments (ents). The Students' Union provides all aspects of entertainment from live bands and D Js, to comedy and theatre and everything in between and beyond.

UL is also famous for its Charity Week where the campus is taken over for a week by the daytime and night time events which raise money for four worthwhile charities. The backbone of UL Ents is the regular events. Bands that have played in UL over the years include Bressie's band The Blizzards, Saw Doctors, Wolfe Tones, Republic of Loose, Damien Dempsey, Mick Flannery, The Coronas, Shane MacGowan and loads more.

On the comedy front, UL has seen the best in Irish talent along with the odd international acts too. Recent acts have included Neil Delamere, Andrew Maxwell, PJ Gallagher, Colin Murphy, Karl Spain, Tommy Tiernan and Des Bishop along with many, many more. In other words, all the best, young and new Irish comedians come to UL.

Charity Week

In a word, UL Charity Week is nuts! Formally known as RAG Week, it is recognised as one of the best in the country and its main aim is to make as much money for charity as possible. Basically, we come up with as many games as we can involving food, rubber, ropes, gunge, water, broncos and more, throw in a few comedians, bands and hypnotists and mix it all up with some good weather and plenty "up for anything" students. You'll see what we mean when you get here. We'll treat you to some of the biggest bands, DJs and comedians that money can buy.

A recent addition to Charity Week is the Great Race, a competition covering the four corners of Ireland. For those of you with a sense of adventure, this is the thing for you. It's a treasure hunt with a difference.

UL Ents also organises class parties, Christmas parties, Hallowe'en parties, St. Patrick's Day parties, start of term parties, end of term parties... are you seeing a pattern here? As the old saying goes, any excuse for a party! So, the bottom line is, with your UL Students' Union, there's always something going on, usually of really good quality and far cheaper than you'd get anywhere else. Just get here, meet a bunch of people, and the fun can begin.
