It's time to assemble the squads, get your glam on and find out your best telly angles.

First Dates Ireland have announced that they're looking for groups to take part in filming some 'fun clips'.

Go grab your work colleagues, mates or sports team and have some craic.

And the absolutely added bonus is that you don't even have to go to the effort of looking for love to get your mug on the telly.

COCO Television tweeted: We want to record some fun extra clips for the new series of #FirstDatesIRL and need a few great craic groups to take part in some digital videos."

"Whether you're part of a sports team or a knitting group, best friends or close colleagues, we want to hear from you! Apply today."

We don't know what you're waiting for as there is literally no downsides to this.

More information can be found here.

We are looking forward to seeing you and all your mates on our TV screens soon.



What happens when none of your friends are around and you really, really want to go out for a dance? Or maybe you’ve moved to a new area and are having some trouble meeting new people, what then? It can be a lonely experience for many women.

Well, we have the answer for you … Or rather, GirlCrew does! With over 3,000 members in Ireland alone, and groups in London, New York and even Sydney, GirlCrew is THE way to meet new and fun friends.

If you want to go for coffee, the cinema, a night out, a run – anything you can think of, GirlCrew will set you up with other women who want to do the same.

Elva, the genius behind GirlCrew, explained why she decided to set the company up, explaining that all of her friends were busy one evening, and she wanted a night on the tiles (we can totally relate to this, Elva!) 

She explains: 

 “One Friday night in March of this year, I was at home and really wanted to go out and had no one to go out with. My group of friends is small but lovely, so this happens. I knew there had to be at least a couple of other girls who this happens to as well, so i popped up my search for some dancing buddies on Tinder, changing my gender to ‘male’ in the settings so i’d show up to other straight girls and gave it a shot.”

“I thought I’d find two, three, maybe four girls who wanted to go out dancing. But there were MILLIONS! (Well, a hundred within two days.) Since then it’s grown into these awesome little groups of women all over the place who want to just meet up and hang out – whether it’s for gigs, coffees, nights out dancing, running, eating, whatever.”

So, where can you find GirlCrew? A lot of places, it turns out! All around Ireland, GirlCrew numbers are growing by the day and you can now find groups in Cork, Limerick, Kerry, Dublin, Meath, Galway, Belfast, Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford and even more.

If your county isn’t there – check out the website to find out how you can start a GirlCrew group in your locality!  

However, GirlCrew isn’t limited to Ireland so if you have recently found yourself in a far off country and want to meet new friends, you will find groups in New York, Atlanta, Dublin, London and even Sydney!

So, get interacting, ladies and you will soon find yourself with a seriously fun-filled diary with lots of great people!

It doesn’t matter where you went to school in Ireland – these lot were there.

Which famous clique were you a part of growing up?

1. The D4′s
Whether or not they were from Dublin4, it didn’t change the fact they rocked Dubes, had Roxy schoolbags and wore those coral necklaces. Activities from this gang would usually include going on shopping trips to New York and supporting the local rugby team.

The_O.C._-_The_Core_Four2. The Scary Crowd
“WHAT ARE YOU LOOKIN’ AT?” Everyone who was not in this group, tended to stay the hell away from them. The Scary Crowd were always a frightening bunch and straightening/gelling their hair to bits was a general past time for these lovely class members. It seems that no matter what you did, you somehow managed to slag their cousin.

14brgig3. The Messers
Ah these classmates were always good craic. The Messers tended to be good-hearted people who wanted to bring a little laughter into the school day. Whether that was drawing a penis on the blackboard or slagging the teacher, the Messers were no doubt the best craic in the year.

tumblr_l66vip1geF1qzdf0go1_4004. The Sporty People
The Sporty people tend to be almost always out of class. This made everyone jealous that they got to miss the horrible maths test and occasional homework. It felt like they were excused from academic work because they could kick a football or something.

tumblr_inline_mv6r2rxauX1qcryb65. The Emo Kids
This group mostly kept to themselves. They did not indulge in socialising often, especially not in school. You often find them hanging out with other angsty teenagers at the weekend in town squares or at Central Bank, wearing nothing but black. They would also often inscribe worrying lyrics into tables during class.

tumblr_lm390bs01h1qcqavbo1_5006. The Nerds
These were the folk who stayed in and did their homework while the rest of us were off drinking in the local field. These people were generally terrified of interaction with others who were not nerds for the fear they would be asked for the answer of last night’s maths questions. Realistically they’re probably rolling around in money somewhere right now.

82606-nerd-alert-gif-Austin-Powers-tVhE7. The Bebo Stunnahs
They had 100,000+ pages views on Bebo, and were constantly getting in trouble for having too many piercings/blue hair/wearing a hello kitty onesie instead of their uniform. These people have no doubt evolved into Hipsters and are now roaming the streets in over-sized denim jackets and vintage rubbish bags.

giphy8. The Rockers
It was band t-shirt and combat trousers all round in this group. When they weren’t busy not taking a shower, they would spend they’re time listening or pretending to like Metallica and praised Tenacious D. Generally a friendly group of teens, looking more threatening than they actually were.


10. The Popular People
Don’t lie, we all wanted to hang out with the popular people. They had the best parties and knew all the good sessions. They resembled the cast members of The O.C and didn’t have a spot or a blemish in sight. Jerks.
