THE NEW MATCHMAKERS
This film, made by the Radharc team, shows the efforts of rural priests to increase marriage rates through the establishment of dating agencies the Knock Marriage Bureau in Mayo and the A.B.C. (Anonymous Bachelor’s Club) in Limerick which provide a ‘necessary service’ in the life of Ireland. Best dating preparation and conduct is taught at an etiquette class for young farmers at Glenamaddy.
