'The Submarine'

The Submarine is the excellent magazine of our College Library. The third, bumper, edition is now online below and features :-
  • an editorial by Librarian Tom McConville (with fetching photograph of Ben Russell as Malvolio in our production of Twelfth Night),
  • a review of Robert Harris's Imperium by Robert Murtagh ("what a cliffhanger!"); one of Mark Urban's Rifles, by Michael Poulton ("superbly written"); one of Jack Kerouac's On the Road by Oli Smith ("it makes me yearn to hit the road"); and one of Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore by Crispin Maenpaa ("stunning"),
  • recommendations by staff and pupils based on their recent reading,
  • a list of some of the new books in the Library,
  • an account by Sophie Haslett of working at the Daily Telegraph in London over the summer (and see her recent Irish Times article here)
  • a cartoon in Irish by Molly Sanderson and Poppy Vernon,
  • a poem titled 'As Far as I Can' by "a shy individual",
  • a piece by Dr Garry Bannister on salvation and morality in the 'Shoot the Messenger' feature,
  • an article by Niamh McBurney on the musical history of Kieran Kelly, a member of our maintenance staff,
  • Joseph Millar's account of a Transition Year trek, and David Cooper's TY experience of collecting for charity,
  • Lauren O' Connell's account of Old Columban Richard Hemphill,
  • Laura Hatton comparing two different eras at the College.
  • and an entertaining piece by the magazine's designer Patrick Ussher on cricket in France (see his website here).Submarinejun07 Submarinejun07 sccenglish Library Magazine June, 2007
