Motley is UCC’s official monthly magazine, written and edited by its students. We cater for the interests of our readers (including students, staff and those outside the university) through our Current Affairs, Entertainments, Features, and Fashion sections: exclusive interviews, investigations into the college itself, analysis of current affairs, features on local events, articles on all aspects of university life, satirical writings, food and health, the latest fashion trends, extensive photo-shoots, and all things in the world of entertainment from film, TV and music to books, gaming and theatre.

First founded by the UCC Journalism and Media Society in 2006, the magazine runs on a non-profit basis, published each month and distributed free of charge around the university’s campus and various businesses in Cork and the surrounding areas.

Motley is increasingly growing its presence on the web, where we focus on clean, minimal design for the best reading experience on all devices; at home or on the move. Motley.ie focuses primarily on bringing the author’s words to life, letting go of information overload.

Motley has been awarded the title of KBC Student Magazine of the Year for four years running (2013-2016)!

Following its sabbatical in the 2008/09 academic year, Motley returned in 2009/10 in full force and each year since has seen Motley Magazine go from strength to strength. This year we have built on a highly effective platform to make it one of the most successful years yet – establishing a strong online platform and expanding our readership, as well as continuing to provide a high standard of printed issues.

Make sure you’re part of the successful year ahead. Join us on Facebook at facebook.com/MotleyMagazine, and follow us on Twitter @MotleyMagazine. Contact the Editor at editor@motley.ie with any questions and for more details on how to get involved.
