The Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival is currently underway (28 August 2011 - 03 October 2011) with people travelling from all over the country and further afield; with it now being viewed as Europe's largest singles event.

But nowadays most aren't just looking for a spouse, but rather a good time.  From midday dancing takes place and continues into the early hours of the following morning.

One of our own 'Mickey Mac' made a great impression this year when he drew the attention of Irish singer Sinead O'Connor.  All we can say is that "Nothing Compares To U" Mickey!
