Niall Prendeville on 96FM radio in the mornings ran a feature recently on the dating scene in Cork. We are very happy & relieved to hear that Clodagh, his lovely researcher, who attended our event last night was very complimentary on the radio this morning and had nothing but nice things to say about our speeddating. See more feedback below.

Thanks Brendan but no more texts please. The event last May turned out to be very successful. Michael
Michael had 2 matches. His 1st date went so well he never got around to meeting the 2nd.

Good Luck to both of you.

Sun 11th Sept '11. Hub
Fantastic night, great venue and well organised. Compared to other speeddating events I have attended this was by far the best. I will definitely come again and recommend Velo Promotions. Ger

Alie apologised for having to leave early due to personal reasons. She would love to have stayed because she thought the guys were all lovely and the crowd in general were a very nice group of people. Alie still managed a few matches after only 30 minutes. She promised to come again.

I'd much rtather the Hub to any of the hotels you used in the past Brendan. The venue is much more informal and more relaxed as a result. Keep up the good work. John

Sun 28th Aug '11. Hub
Thanks Brendan. V good last night. Good few new faces, so word of mouth is getting out there I'd say and I'm happy with my matches. Capricorn

Thanks a lot. I really like the new location. I had a good time and I only received positive feedback. See you soon. Dreamer

Hi Brendan. I met my true love, Michael, on May 8th last in Hub bar. We've been happy campers ever since. It would be impossible to spend €30 more wisely. Keep up the good work!

Speed dating can be a fast and effective way of meeting someone special and a great opportunity to broaden your circle of friends. At our speed dating events across Munster you will speed date up to 30 single and professional people at each event. We at Velo take great care when choosing our venues. We insist on having the exclusive use of a suitable room, usually modern, spacious, with suitable background music and, with a private bar and waiter service. The room must also have a romantic ambience with 20 – 30 tables for two, well spaced out ensuring that your conversations will be totally private. When you arrive you will be greeted by one of our speed dating hosts who will welcome you, put you at ease and occasionally offer you complimentary drinks at the speed dating reception. You will then be introduced to the other guests where you will mingle until the speed dating begins. After the speed dating you will hand in your Speed Ticket to your host. You will be informed of any matches you might have the next working day. The rest of the evening is your own and usually this can be the best part of the evening. Most of you will adjourn to the bar where you now have the opportunity to meet the same people again and possibly one or two that you might fancy.

Come alone if you are new in town or short on friends. Speed dating with Velo is a great way to socialize comfortably.
