' Thinking it must get lonely down there on the farm for these poor guys, I tried to envisage a future that involved going to Macra dances and helping to bring in the hay. Apart from sons of the soil, I spoke to several men who were fed up with the pub scene.

Then there was the guy who looked a little like Bill Clinton- minus the charisma. We thought we would attract at least 100 people and possibly the max of 180. Not enough people expressed an interest in the party but most just wanted speeddating.

At our over 50's event on Sunday 9th Oct we met a gent who told us that his daughter met her husband at one of our events in the Ambassador a few years ago and they are very happy with a new baby since.
