“Not bad for DCU students” is a bit patronising for what is one of the best musicals I’ve seen. These kids rock at this. While the material is decades old and probably out of sync with life today, the numbers, costumes and talent were something else. One of the most entertaining shows around, thank you to all those who put it together as I’m on a high from the energy of it. Shame some people in the audience were physically reacting with horror because the musical has gay and lesbian characters. They kiss, get over it.

eircom today launch their new mobile broadband plug and play product. It costs €19.99 a month and is on a 12 month contract. Yes, it runs on the Meteor network. The biggy in my view is that with the product, you get access to eircom’s WiFi hotspots which are in 1,000+ locations across Ireland. 10GB download allowance too. Additionally customers will have access to exclusive online content from Setanta Sports
The network for now is only available in Dublin, Cork city, Dundalk, Drogheda, Bray, Naas and Newbridge but eircom say they’ll be extending the coverage range to over half the population by the end of 2009.
