There have been some awkward starts to many an encounter on First Dates Ireland but tonight sees two daters have the ice broken very quickly.

Veterinary nurse Sarah (26) from Galway meets with Kilkenny primary school teacher Paul (29) and things are off to a great start when Sarah shares her love for Paul's home country.

However Paul soon has her in absolute stitches over his way of pronouncing the word 'quays'.

As Barman Ethan reassures, "She's not laughing at you, she's laughing with you."

Catch First Dates Ireland tonight on 9.30pm.
