Anna Geary is set to play the role of Cupid for rural Ireland in a new RTÉ show committed to helping people find their “special someone”.
The all-Ireland winner will meet seven ‘rural romantics’ who are having a hard time falling in love in the countryside.
Their video profiles are already available online – and potential matches are being invited to apply for Domestic Love.
“I am the daughter of a farmer and grew up in rural Ireland,” said the Cork native.
“It’s a great healthy lifestyle, but meeting someone is becoming increasingly difficult.
“We live in an era where ‘swipe right’ is the norm, yet a lot of people don’t like that approach.
“Love in the Country, as the name suggests, can help people find love,” adds Anna.
“I’m excited to start with Love in the Country. I will be a confidant, a listener and a sidekick for those who are hoping for love, with some laughs along the way.

In its guidance for promising candidates, RTÉ says: “If successful, you will be invited to spend three days with them, along with two other data providers, as you get to know them better and try them out. their lifestyle.
“At the end of the three days, they and the person they were paired with can decide if they want to see each other again.
“If so, they will date a few weeks later, in the hope that the love will bear fruit!”
The presenter Anna Geary herself has been very lucky in love, now helping people around the country.
She married Dubliner Kevin Sexton in the summer of 2019, although the pandemic has delayed the couple’s honeymoon until this year.
Anna recently told The Sunday World about “ I ovely” four days off in Iceland.
“This is the first time we have left Ireland in three and a half years.
