Love at Electric Picnic: Can you help this woman find her mystery man?

Love in a hopeless place!

Love at Electric Picnic: Can you help this woman find her mystery man?

Romance was in the air last weekend when a Portlaoise lady met a Laois man at the Electric Picnic festival.

Cupid got to work with his love arrows and struck a homerun with this particular couple who seem to have found love in a hopeless place but unfortunately went their seperate ways without swapping numbers or names.

Unwillling to let a good thing go without a fight this woman contacted her local radio station Midlands 103 in an attempt to locate the man of her Electric Picnic dreams.

Details are scarce, but according to our enchanted lass, the man in question “Spoke softly” with “short grey hair” and a “nice smile”.

He is also from Laois on the Cork Road near Abbeyleix.

The story goes that this woman was sitting in the grass, in a purple poncho when the man approached her.

The pair were under the tree beside the Tiger Bar tent on the left hand side of the main stage while waiting for Lana Del Ray on Sunday.

Unfortunately as the lady said: “With the rain, the crowds and the dark” they lost each other without swapping digits or even names.

Now the lovestruck woman is on a mission to find her mystery man with the help of her local radio station.

If you have a pal you think fits the bill – or maybe this man is you! - get in contact and we will pass on your details.

This could be the finest love story since Romeo and Juliet and hopefully with a happier ending!
