Welcome to the I.T. Tralee Students Union Magazine! R.A.G Week 2011 I think we can all agree that this years R.A.G Week was a big sucess. We’re all delighted here in the SU on how things went and we hope you all enjoyed it. Daft Funk got us started on the Sunday night along with Protobaby. The balloon drop so lots of students recieved free drink, tickets and prizes while the BBQ kept you all fed. Monday’s Bungee jump also went down a treat with many of you taking the risk. We were also joined that day by Glanmire Ices who kept our sweet teeth satisfied. The always entertaining silent disco was held on the Monday which showed us all your singing skills. Tuesday’s pool tournement was a big sucess for those of you who managed to get out of bed. Anyone who was out Tuesday night knows exactly how that went down. After all the moaning and groaning I think credit needs to go to 5ive and Sclub3 for a fantastic show. Ben Martin & Liniage kept the members bar entertained while Enemy Armada rocked room 2. On Wednesday we welcomed Steve Spade to the college as he showed us all his magic tricks. Many of us are still trying to figure out how he pulled some of them off. For those of you who attended the mystery tour “Bravo”. It turned out to be a great night with nobody getting lost or damaged :). To finish the week off we kicked it with Muzzy G & Jazzy Jay along with Bella @ the members bar. Hope you all enjoyed the week :) I T Factor 2011 The IT Factor Tralee heats took place on Tuesday 22nd February 2011.
