Film fest

Some films are best viewed on the big screen – we’re thinking Lord of the Rings, Kingdom of Heaven and Star Wars, to name but a few. If you’re a movie maniac, you may want to get in on Cineworld IMAX Film Fest in Dublin – running Saturday February 27th. With cinema tickets for just €4, experience Gravity, Jurassic World, The Martian and Mad Max: Fury Road on an epic scale!

Sports Direct for school

Most schools around the country are on mid-term, and it’s time to reassess what they’ve broken, lost or temporarily misplaced before they return. Hence the back to school sale, which offers up to 90% off shoes, bags, coats and shirts, ending at midnight this Sunday (February 21st).

Don’t be phazed

Thinking of bolstering your car care kit? Halfords has a deal on two handy Phaze tool kits – a 52-piece set for €12 (was €35) and a 95-piece kit for €18, reduced from €50.
