A Cork singles sports bar is the type of place you would expect to find a footie-loving man.

This may sound like a swooping generalisation, but men usually love sports.

Cork may be one of Ireland's biggest cities, but that doesn't necessarily make the dating game any easier; despite there being thousands of eligible local singles, the challenge lies in being able to find each other.
