A singles event for people aged over 40 will take place in Naas on August 23.

The “Meet and Mingle” party takes place the Maudlins House Hotel, dublin road, starting at 9pm; it’s a ticket only event and tickets cost €25.

It’s about having fun, making friends and “maybe even meet that someone special.”

One of the organisers told the Leader that as people get a little bit more mature and find themselves single at the same time, their social life can become very limited. “The majority of people may have married friends and family but it can be difficult in smaller towns to link up with other singles. This is regardless of whether people simply want to make other single friends or find a partner,” she said.

There are very few social groups for singles over 40 in the Co. Kildare area.

“The ideal is to be able to make friends in your own locality. Internet dating exists for people who may wish to find a partner and while this works very well for some, it simply does not for others because some are more comfortable and engage better with others on a face to face basis.” The night will provide people with an opportunity to mix, chat, and dance and have good time and the hosts will encourage this.
