Lisdoonvarna’s famous Matchmaker Willie Daly was - quite literally - the talk of this week's Saturday Night with Miriam.

While being interviewed last night by Miriam O'Callaghan on the RTÉ One show, Daly's mobile phone rang and he didn't hesitate to take the phone out of his pocket and answer the call.

"Someone's actually phoning Willie," said Miriam. "They're probably looking for a match, Willie."

"Hello," said Willie, trying to keep a straight face. Laughing, Miriam said: "It's fine."

"Yeah, yeah. I'll tell you now," said Willie to his caller. "I told you she was good-looking . . . she's quite attractive from a distance."

With Miriam pointing out the obvious fact that he was taking a call during a live television show, Willie cut his call short.

"I'm on live TV, Paddy," he said. "Just ring me tomorrow morning . . . Sorry about that . . . I go to mass first so."

We can only wish caller Paddy the best of luck in his search for love.
