A recent article in the Wall Street Journal tells the rather amazing story of a tiny Irish town that every year welcomes thousands of singles who are looking for love, but tired of dating sites.

Wang also introduces Willie Daly, a 70-year-old man who to many, is considered to be Ireland’s last traditional matchmaker.
