How broad it is in the first year which could be considered a good thing but if you no what route u wanna go down i feel like i was doing subjects that were irrelevant to me. However, it might be relevant later in my studies.

Are you an active member of any societies?


Are you a member of any sports clubs?


If Yes, where and why?

Cappavilla, Thomond and Dromroe are the highest quality of accomadation in UL a lot of fourth years live there though so security for parties and that is quite strict. Kilmurray is the place to go if you want to enjoy the newly found college life as a first year. Plassey is also a mainly first year village however it is a bit of a walk into college every morning.
