First Dates Ireland was on RTÉ 2 last night and as usual it was quality viewing.
A number of couples caught people's attention and got the Twitter mills spinning
First there was Kari and Camille, who seemed to be getting on well...
Although there was a very awkward moment when Kari asked Camille to hand over cash for her half of the meal...

That Icelandic chap was a god awful arsehole, taking the cash off her and paying by card #firstdatesirl— David Farrell ™ (@davidkfarrell) February 10, 2017
First he judges her because she's not vegan then he asks her to pay him cash so he can pay card for the dinner 😳😭 #firstdatesirl— 👑Eimear Flatley💋 (@eim_f) February 9, 2017
•He wore those trousers,
•He suggested he farted a lot
•He made her pay half the bill,
Can't believe he took cash off that girl like u mean vegan islandic pox #FirstDatesIRL— DLB (@deanosummer85) February 9, 2017
Ah now... Did he actually ask her for the cash???? 🙈 I don't mind paying half but come ooooon. #FirstDatesIRL— Áine Dunne (@Aine_Dunne) February 9, 2017
And then there were his jeans...
What are those trousers 😂😂😂💀 #FirstDatesIRL— Sean Harkin (@SeanHarkin) February 9, 2017
#FirstDatesIRL I was wondering why Kari was single, because he seems really nice and very pretty! And then I saw his jeans....— not reggie (@fianna_mna) February 10, 2017
And a bit of awkwardness about being vegan..
People were not impressed.
That Icelandic guy was a complete asshole #FirstDatesIRL— Ryan O'Grady (@ryanogrady97) February 9, 2017
Then there was the exuberant George who unfortunately kept putting his foot in it, more than once, in the eyes of the Twitterati audience at least.
But that didn't stop him getting a second date and a third...
Three dates with that lad?! #FirstDatesIRL— cot 👻🐀 (@LigOFE) February 9, 2017
Genuinely surprised that feminist girl and farmer lad went past the first date #FirstDatesIRL— Paul McG (@paulpmcg) February 9, 2017
#FirstDatesIRL George!! You are next level. At least 3 dates when it started the way it did. I tip my hat to you.
Hopefully still together— Aaron Jenner (@jenner_87) February 9, 2017
Although it doesn't seemed to have bothered him much!
But by all accounts it was Gary and Ian who won the hearts of the nation.
But unfortunately it didn't work out for the star couple...
Omg the fact that Ian and Gary didn't work out actually physically hurts. Maybe I'm too invested #firstdatesirl— Nicola Byrne (@nicolabyrn3) February 9, 2017
WTF??? I'm actually devastated, that Gary & Ian didn't work out 🙁😣 #FirstDatesIRL— Shonagh Byrne (@shonaghnibhroin) February 9, 2017

Who was quality with the quotes all night
And as usual, it was the 'blonde waitress'Alice Marr who stole the show..
No disrespect to all the dates but who is the blonde waitress??? And tell me is she single??? Wow. 😱😍😂😝 #FirstDatesIRL— David Sweeney (@DavidSweeney22) February 9, 2017
All in all people were very impressed with the show
