Single lads of Ireland (who have a word or two of Portuguese), today is your lucky day. 

If you watched the World Cup in Brazil, saw the festival atmosphere and thought to yourself "that looks like the place for me", then you might be in luck. A town in the Minas Gerais region called Noiva do Cordeiro is appealing for strapping young men to move there to help out. 

What are they needed for? Well, that's where this gets even better for those single men out there, as the town is populated by around 600 women, aged between 20-35, who are looking for lads for...well, y'know. Oh, and apparently the area is famed for the fact that its residents are very pleasing on the eye.

There is one catch though: you have to be willing to live by their rules, and do what they say. The women are most certainly in charge in the town, and they have no intention of letting any men come in and try to take over, which is why they have ended up with a lack of lads living there.

The town dates back to the late 19th century, and was founded by a woman who had been excommunicated by the church. Some of the women there are married already, but their husbands work in a different part of the region, while young men tend to leave by the age of 18. Some men have tried to move in and start telling them how things are done, The Mirror claims they introduced a strict 'no males' policy a while back as a result. 

Nelma Fernandes, 23, said that while they enjoy their way of life, it has created a slight problem: "Here, the only men we single girls meet are either married or related to us, everyone is a cousin. I haven't kissed a man for a long time. We all dream of falling in love and getting married. But we like living here and don't want to have to leave the town to find a husband".

She also added that the town is better off with women at the helm too: "Our town is prettier, more organised, and far more harmonious than if men were in charge...We share everything, even the land we work on. Nobody competes with anyone here. It’s all for one, and one for all."

Obviously, this story has gathered plenty of attention and publicity for the area, so something tells us that immigration levels in that town might be about to get a bit of a boost.
