WLTM a GAA fan: the love site for good sports
Lovelorn GAA fans can find their perfect match on a dating website just for them.
The idea for Lovegaa.com came to web designer Dermot Lawless when he was watching his native Donegal playing Clare in the All Ireland Football Championship in July.
Dermot (34), from Ballyshannon, who met his own fiancée, Susan Heaney from Buncrana, on a dating website four years ago, couldn't believe it hadn't been thought of before.
“Online dating no longer has a stigma and it makes a lot of sense. Now that many of us are no longer socialising as much as we used to, the opportunity to meet someone is not what it once was.
“With this site, people who sign up already have something in common, which is a great ice-breaker,” he said.
In less than a week, the site already has over 50 members, with most ranging in age from their 30s to their 50s.
Also, for a sport that attracts such a large number of male participants and supporters, women outnumber men on the dating site.
