The famous Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival which is considered to be Europe’s largest singles event is celebrated every year during the month of September with a lot of dancing and craic. If you are single and looking for your romantic partner, then this festival is the greatest opportunity for you to find your soul mate as well as have great fun. This year the 2nd week of the festival (9th – 16th Sept) had a high octane pitch to it and people across the world joined and enjoyed the event immensely. What made the 2nd week memorable for a lot of people present there was the chance to meet Sinead O’Connor, a great singer of our generation. During her show, she announced that she was also looking for her love and that made the crowd all the more excited. She said that on an earlier occasion she had tried internet dating but later on gave up and decided to visit Lisdoonvarna instead. She came with her minder “Anton” who is really a pretty cool guy along with her two male nannies from the UK. Her presence and the vivaciousness she showed during the event was hugely appreciated by the crowd.
