Dr Ilona Duffy believes that young people are showing less concern for things like unplanned pregnancy and infections, than the generations before them.

"We're seeing the likes of Tinder, other websites where people are hooking up purely for sex and people, young people especially, don't have the same hang ups as they had years ago – worrying about pregnancy, worrying about STIs, worrying just about their reputation," she said.

"So it is very different. While it is fine to be on Tinder etc and meeting up people for casual sex – you've got to take precautions and I think that's not out there," she said.

She also said that an improvement in Ireland's sex education system is need to decrease the prevalence of STIs in Irish society.

However, she did point out that the growing number of sexual health clinics around the county could behind the inflated figures.

As many of us singletons are often caught slaving over Tinder and Happn, reports circulated today that Amy met her new man on a dating application. 

We brought you the news yesterday of Amy's new bae, Ben Hanisch, but what we didn't know then is that the pair allegedly met on a dating app called Bumble. 

However, while gossip sites went crazy over this piece of information, Amy was quick off the mark to refute the claims. 

Taking to Twitter, Amy wrote: "Please let the record show that I have never in my life been on Bumble." 

However, the app itself doesn't sound too bad. It's is all down to the woman to make the first move which sounds like it would be right up Amy's street. 

Yep, matches are deleted automatically if the girl has not reached out to make contact with the guy within the first 24 hours. 

The duo have revealed their relationship status on social media in the last week with Ben posting a particularly adorable message on an Instagram pic of the pair. 

"Sometimes in life you get extremely lucky, and the smartest, funniest, most beautiful woman comes along when you least expect it."

"Here's to what adventures 2016 brings!"

We are super happy for Amy. Meanwhile, we will just continue to swipe right and hope.
