Top Definition
A university degree that offers students the ability to study a wide range of subjects, but ultimately learn nothing. The arts degree provides a broad college experience, but extremely bad job prospects.
Arts students will often try to disguise their choice of course by naming the individual subjects they're doing, e.g. 'Theology and Sociology', 'Anthropology, Quantitave Economics and Medieval German'.(Nice try, it's still arts!)
Having only 8-12 hours of college a week (including tutorials, practicals, study and any other work their course 'demands') leaves arts students with a lot of free time. This free time is usually taken up with protests, smoking weed, sleeping, attending concerts or styling their hair/applying fake tan.

An Irish nightclub that is a rite of passage for thousands of teenagers throughout the midlands of Ireland. Located in Tullamore, Co. Offaly, this club and it's lax policy of allowing (and some say, encouraging) underage drinking, attracts all social groups looking for a good 'shift' (or maybe more). From goths to chavs all are welcomed.

Anto: Biyz, are yees goin to Harriers?, it'll be savage craic!
Wayne: No way, I'm nearly 18! Way too old for that place.

For legal reasons, I must state that Harriers 'complies with all the laws regarding alcohol sale and consumption'. Nudge nudge, wink wink.

Declan Moffat, while extremely hungover and struggling to form sentences describing a situation where a man wants to make love to a woman, but she's not in the mood, but requires some gentle persuasion: "DID YA EVER RAPE SOMEONE?"
This is an example of "A Declan Moffat".
