One elderly couple won over the hearts of the nation on First Dates Ireland

FINDING love seems harder now more than ever.

It seems like there are more singletons on the planet than years ago, and with the emergence of dating apps and sites, it seems like romance is long gone.

The patience that is required for romance to blossom is often forgone these days as people are more impatient than ever, but two people who are serving as an inspiration to those of us still single are Pat and Maureen - both of whom featured on tonight's episode of First Dates Ireland.

The pair of Dubliners soon hit it off as they chatted about their former loves and growing up in Dublin years ago.
