11 Irish lads you'll definitely meet on Tinder
All the single fellas (all the single fellas)…

THE TINDER APP has revolutionised dating in Ireland.

The smartphone tool allows you to check people out, give them the nod, and see if they gave you the nod back.

Not everyone on Tinder is to everyone’s tastes though.

Bit harsh!

With a reported 150,000 people in this country now using Tinder, we’ve asked those in the know about the Irish lads asking you to swipe right…
