From the first episode of new dating show Pioc do Ride on TG4 last night.

“This is a new dating show where dates are chosen not on personality or looks but on the car that they drive and what’s in it. There’s plenty of mortification and plenty of chuckles.”


Pioc do Ride is on Thursdays, at 10pm on TG4.

We are currently producing a new TG4 dating called Pioc do Ride. It’s a dating show and it promises to be serious craic. [To wit:]

Are you a single driver looking for a co-pilot? Has the ‘look of love’ across the dashboard eluded you so far? Maybe you’re just too in love with your car. If so, get up out of your motor and participate in a brand new dating show! We are currently looking for lots of participants and we thought it might interest the Broadsheet Massive. Contact the producers at piocdoride@gmail.com or on Facebook.


Love and nom: together at last.

MiX@ is a new concept for unattached people who have had enough scary encounters on Tinder and POF “cringe at the thought of cheesy single set ups, online dating and faceless matchmaking”.

Mix@ was created by cupid’s apostles Nikki Dwyer and Alan Kennedy.

Nikki writes:

“This is not about speed dating, or gimmicky matchmaking services, this is about broadening your circles of people with whom you ‘mix’ with, the fact that they are all single – well it’s just an added bonus. MiX@ is different, present at big social events you’d otherwise want to attend…”

Mix@ have given us four, yes FOUR individual passes to the Mix@ Taste of Dublin 2014 event in the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin, on Sunday, 15 June.

The current ratio for the gathering is 2:1 women

The pass includes entry to Taste of Dublin, the Mix@ marquee, a drink on arrival and an optional boogie to a performance by Smash Hits 90s.
