Forget Dating Apps: This Irishman Can Find Your Future Partner

Willie Daly the matchmaker

Not about sliding into your crush’s DMs? No problem.

Matchmaking has been in practice for hundreds of years in Ireland. For Willie Daly, it’s been his profession for 50 years, and it’s still going strong. In fact, he’s probably the only handful left in the entire country and still finds it fulfilling to find husbands and wives for his clients. Matchmaking is especially needed in more rural places in Ireland, given females are a lot more scarce. His matchmaking even runs in his own blood: his father and grandfather worked as professional matchmakers! Watch how Daly’s matchmaking business has changed local Irish people and how it continues to thrive despite rising popularity in dating apps.
