First Dates Ireland star admits she got a LOT of hate after the show


First Dates Ireland has been a major hit since it aired nearly a month ago, and it's safe to say we all pick sides sometimes.

But, Sarah Hamilton, who appeared on the show last week has opened up about the online haters she's since attracted from being on the series.

Talking to Eoghan McDermott on 2fm, Sarah said: "You never know how people will perceive you.

"It's so unforgiving to be a confident woman and I don't understand why," she told Eoghan.

"I think sometimes people would rather you be a shrinking violet. 

"For me, I went on the show thinking my friends are going to take the piss out of me for this and I didn't think about the wider audience," Sarah admitted.

"We are so scared to go onto something nd be normal. God forbid a woman who wear make-up, is writing a novel and has an MA. It is not accepted."
