The people behind Irish First Dates are desperate for more lads to take part

Single men of Ireland: First Dates is looking for you.

LAST WEEK, PRODUCERS put the call out for participants for the forthcoming Irish version of First Dates.

And the nation collectively rejoiced.

So, is that enthusiasm translating into applications? Apparently so, as First Dates producers say that 2,500 brave Irish souls have applied so far.


But there’s a slight catch.


Producers say they have received way more applications from the fairer sex and are currently desperate for more Irish lads to apply.

Of course, Irish women are applying in their droves, so the First Dates casting team would love to hear from some more Irish gentlemen who might be looking for a bit of romance.

Translation: “We don’t have nearly enough lads for all these gals.”

Producers say that they have received applications from singletons across the country and are still encouraging people to apply, whether they’re young or old, single or gay.

Come on, lads of Ireland!

Take a leaf out of Adorably Awkward Lad’s book.
