When Willie Daly first started out in the matchmaking business some 50 years ago, many of his clients were older men seeking young women. A ‘laying hen’ appeared first on Matchmaking Festival....“Now it tends to be the other way round,” he says, sitting in his kitchen overlooking what should be Liscannor bay in north Clare, but covered in a thick fog. A long held traditional in this central town on the southern edges of the scenic Burren area, is the matchmaking festival.After the harvests in September, young farmers from all over Ireland would shuffle into Lisdoonvarna to find themselves a potential wife, with the help of the ‘basadoiri' or matchmakers.Our current partners are listed though out the site.If you would like to get involved with The Outing we would love to hear from you!
