Laois man Michael set to take First Dates by storm next week

We’ve waited what has felt like an eternity for this – but it is now less than six days away.

Mountrath man Michael Boyhan will appear on our TV screens next Thursday night when he takes his seat in the Gibson Hotel on his quest to find love.

Fans of the show got a sneak peak of the Mountrath native and his date at the end of last night’s episode.

And there looks to be a bit of chemistry between Mick and his date as the small exchange shows the pair of them exchanging in a bit of slagging.

Mick, who is looking very sharp, says: “You’re a shocking fidgeter, you’re always playing with your hair. Do you know what that is a sign of?

And his date shoots back: “Not Nerves anyway.”

Back at the start of January, we revealed that Mountrath native Michael Boyhan would appear on the latest series of the very popular RTE show.

After the success of Camross native Eoin Scully on last year’s show, we’re sure producers of the popular dating series were chomping at the bit to get another Laois man on the screen.

The Mountrath man is a familiar face to those on the Laois hurling and camogie scenes.

He has been involved in both hurling and camogie underage setups, and came into the Laois U-20 hurling backroom team in a strength and conditioning role alongside manager David Cuddy.

In 2017 he was strength and conditioning coach with the Laois minor hurling team and was also involved as a hurling coach in Mountrath Community School.

In 2018, he was an integral part of the management team for Slieve Bloom who won the Intermediate hurling title in Laois – defeating Camross in the final.

Will Michael find love? Tune in next Thursday March 28 at 9.30pm on RTE 2 to find out.
