With Valentine's Day approaching we have been looking at clips from clips from RTÉ archives on the theme of love and romance. 

Today, we take a look at a speed dating service for foreign professionals living in Dublin. Philip Bromwell investigates for RTÉ News. Men and women are given three minutes to suss out potential partners at match-making events held at Doyle's pub in Dublin. Alex Janssens, co-founder of Speed Dating Dublin, is in charge of proceedings on the night and rings a bell when it is time to move on to the next date. Those present say you get to learn about different countries and the service saves time in meeting people.
