About this item

Trinity College Dublin is famed for the intelligence and innovation of its students. However, not all the undergraduates have devoted their talents to academia; instead they spent their time devising ingenious and hilarious pranks to play on the unsuspecting dons. This fascinating volume recalls some of the greatest stunts, japes and practical jokes in the University’s history, including: a night-time escapade by the University Boat Club that plunged the town of Henley into darkness, the ‘buildering’ traditions of Trinity night climbers, the sticky-****** activities of the Phil Society and its long-running rivalry with the Hist, and the exploits of future antiquarian and prince of mischief Andrew Bonar-Law. Also featured are some of the darker deeds of mischief that the earlier students were involved in, such as the Battle of Botany Bay and the pranks that went too far . . . This enthralling work will amaze and entertain in equal measure – and may well prove a source of inspiration for current students wishing to enliven their undergraduate days.
