In a world where beauty is measured by an invasive media, be it either mainstream or social Media, where a person (male or Female) is judged on their relationship status, again by the media, yet judged much harsher by their family and friends. The brutal reality is that the matchmaking festival in Lisdoonvarna is the last chance saloon for many of its participants.
