Two Clare men who have not taken the matrimonial path give their views on women, love and marriage.

John O'Donoghue meets two bachelors from County Clare who talk about their attitudes to women and marriage and explain why they have never married.

On paper, these two men are very eligible bachelors. They have their own farms, their own homes and are well set up.

One of the bachelors named Mick says there were two things he could never handle very well, a cut throat razor and women.

The other bachelor Matty said he would like to get married if the right girl came along. While he acknowledges that he could have been married by now, he says he wants to have everything "right" before getting married.

On the meaning of love, Mick says

When starvation comes in, it (love) goes out the window.
