An Aussie-American who put the call out for Irish men to bring her to a wedding during her Irish adventure has received several non-conventional invites.

Tara Foster, 36, is planning on travelling around Ireland on nothing more than a push-bike and she is letting her Twitter followers plot her journey.

However, since putting the call out on Twitter she has received more than a few strange challenges from the Irish public.

"Since the article went live last week, I've had 2,500 Twitter likes, over 200 Faceboook friend requests, 20 wedding invites, a 12-year-old asking me to go to the pub and a nudist colony asking me to hang out at at the beach with them."

Ms. Foster said she was hoping to be invited to an Irish wedding, however she did not think that she would have the opportunity to be going to her own wedding.

"I've also received a marriage proposal. It's been overwhelming. It's taken me two hours to sift though the messages. I also got a lot of messages like "the guy across from me is reading about you on the train right now"

Foster arrives in Dublin from Sydney on September 13. She is taking a few days to adjust from jetlag, then setting off on her journey from Wexford on September 18.

She will also be appearing on the Ray D'Arcy show on RTÉ Radio One during her time in Ireland.
