THE LISDOONVARNA MATCHMAKING Festival, Europe’s largest singles event, kicks off today.

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.

Finding love

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?
