11 epic scenes that sum up Freshers Week around Ireland

Epic and depressing. It’s FRESHERS after all.

IT’S FRESHERS WEEK for loads of colleges around the country – and you know what that means.

Queues for clubs and socs, free sweets for all and impromptu sessions will be had. And 2015 is no different:

1. The queue for the Harry Potter Society in UCC was mind boggling

4. In the University of Limerick, the wristbands for the Freshers Ball were called Banter Bands and the queue was out the door

We’re guessing there were plenty of gags made with that.

6. In DCU, the jamming session was well and truly on

7. This was the scene at the iron stomach contest at IADT in Dun Laoghaire


8. Sweets, as always, played a major role in getting people to join up

This bin of assorted Maoams was spotted in UCD. Sign us up for anything.

9. There were minor Irish celebs knocking around ‘Shite Night’ in DCU

Probably attended just for that name alone. Wonderful.

10. In Waterford IT, the inspirational messages were out in force

Handwritten for that personal touch.

His resemblance to Daniel Day Lewis aside, his costume is what’s most impressive.
