Sinead seeking ‘hairy man’

SEX-STARVED Sinead O’Connor wants to attend Lisdoonvarna’s famous matchmaking festival to find herself “a good hairy man”.

Speaking on the Late Late Show last night, she revealed that she has been celibate for months and had become so sexually frustrated during a recent concert tour that she had looked up male escorts on the internet.

“I have not had sex in seven months and I am not in love with my vibrator,” she told host Ryan Tubridy.

Earlier this week on her website, the singer — who has been vocal recently about being sex-starved — wrote an open love letter to Tubridy, whom she described as being “special” and “snuggly”.

Flirting with the Late Late host last night, she said that she had received such a response to her online requests for sex that her website had crashed.

She told Tubridy: “It’s OK to sleep with Mr Wrong while you’re waiting for Mr Right.”

Sinead, who had performed earlier at Electric Picnic, said she had posted her requests to have fun and make new friends.

“I knew that if I joined dating agencies, it would eventually end up in the newspapers, so I posted on my website. But now I think that Lisdoonvarna is the way to go.”

Earlier this week, she announced she would not appear on the Late Late, but declared a U-turn as a result of a last-minute conversation with Tubridy.
