Twitter reacts to Laois man Michael’s First Date appearance

We’ve waited what has felt like an eternity for this – but Mountrath man Michael Boyhan lit up our TV screens when he appeared on RTÉ’s First Dates tonight.

Mick, who was looking very sharp in the Gibson Hotel brought the usual charm and charisma to the date as he met Colette Conway from Longford, ‘a townie to the bone!’

She described herself as ‘mental mad in the head’ and was on the search for her ‘Conor McGregor’ – we’re sure our Mick could keep up!

The were first up on the show, and Mick spoke about training and the importance he places on positivity in life.

People were impressed with Michael’s chat from the get-go.

And Michael’s chat had them speaking about home comforts and usual routinues.

The general consensus on the Twittersphere? Michael is a very sound lad.

He even spoke about his love life and the love of his life… hurling and camogie!

At the end of the date, the Mountrath man walked away with a second date secured.

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.

Boyhan and his family will be watching tonight’s episode in Sox’s Bar in Mountrath this evening.

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