But will there be a second date?

Ok...so who's had enough of this online dating nonsense? A person could spend weeks, even months, messaging what seems like a phantom only to learn they actually don't want to meet. Wtf?

Sick of hearing all those disastrous swiping stories, Today FM's Dermot and Dave created an ingenious way for one lucky couple to get to know each other, minus the messing.

In a mission to help their 'Honest Dater' (Eve Darcy) finally meet a lad with some potential, the team setup a LIVE blind date that they would EVE-sdrop on throughout the 3 hours of their show.

But would the Sligo gal be impressed by the tasty piece of hunky Galwegian meat (aka Darren Coen) we had sourced?

The production studio was their oyster as we (and all our listeners) were glued to what we can only describe as a mix of First Dates, Big Brother and Love Island (well it was 20+ degrees outside).

But would they go all the way? Eh...a second date that is - not the other thing.

Check out their date & the reactions in full by pressing the play button on screen.
