They place importance on life success and generally value intelligence over looks. Ireland is an island off Western Europe in the Northern Atlantic Ocean.Family and friends are always a vital part of an Irishman’s life.They have a great love of conversation and a genuine interest in other people; independence, education, and a good sense of humor are all hallmarks of the Irish man’s character.“We don’t stop, we keep trying.” In the coming year (2014), seven of the couples they matched this year, will wed, and there may be more.On average around ten couples matched through the agency marry each year.Ireland is a dynamic, lively, modern country with a young population and a successful, technologically-orientated economy.Ireland also remains a country of deeply revered traditions where music, conversation, dance, celebrations and festivals are an important part of life.The Secretary of Ireland’s longest running matchmaking agency, Knock Marriage Introductions, has described the treatment of a man who paid €500 to an internet dating agency in Ireland, and met a woman for about 30 minutes before seeing her out later having a drink with her boyfriend, as “appalling”. “They don’t know what they’re setting themselves up for.” Knock Marriage Introductions which was set up in 1968, asks for an annual subscription of €150 and according to Leona, they make “every effort in arranging for couples to meet.” If a meeting does not work out, clients are usually back immediately to Leona, or the director of the agency, Canon Joseph Cooney, and straight away they try to organise another meeting.“Our clients meet six, seven or eight people a year,” she said.In Knock Marriage Introductions, marriage is not the only measure of success either.“You can sense a heartache of loneliness and that’s what we really work on, whether they marry or not, particularly in their 50s or 60s, if we can match them, they’ll be companions for one another,” says Canon Cooney.
