SERVICES ON THE green line of the Luas have been disrupted this morning following a technical fault on the line.
Services are operating only between Stephen’s Green and Sandyford with a Luas bus service in operation between Sandyford and Brides Glen. Luas tickets will also be valid on Dublin Bus for the duration of the disruption. The company that operates the Luas has apologised to passengers for the disruption.
However, long before there were online dating sites and apps, this matchmaking festival was finding love for thousands of people, reporting to have set up over 3,000 marriages.
This festival stays true to its roots by finding love for people the old fashioned way – Irish hooley-style. However, these days more and more people take out their mobile phone to find a date on the likes of Plenty of Fish and Tinder.
We want to know what you make of dating and finding love in modern times. Would you prefer it went back to days gone by or is online dating a necessity of the busy pace of modern life?
