New year, new dating shows – that’s how the saying goes, isn’t it?

Virgin Media has launched their brand new season line up and as they revealed the brand new shows coming to the channel, one really caught our eye.

Amidst the glorious Love Island chaos with two new seasons being announced for the show, it’s not the only dating series coming to our screens.

The Emerald Isle is getting its own take on a summer dating series but it’s like we’ve seen before.

Virgin Media’s brand new series Grá ar an Trá is coming and they’re currently on the hunt for singletons to be in the series.

The new series is set to shoot this summer and give a whole new outlook on the Gaeltacht – yes, you did read that right.

Grá ar an Trá will see contestants getting to know each other on a stunning scenic location all while trying to learn our native language.

The TV channel said: “The hunt is on for singletons looking for love for our brand-new dating format ‘Grá ar an Trá’.

“Shooting this summer, this is the Gaeltacht like you’ve never seen it before. ‘Grá ar an Trá’ will see singletons couple up and get cosy, as they get to grips with the language… and each other.

“Through fun tasks, cheeky challenges and romantic rendez-vous, our couples will compete to find love and be crowned the couple with the most focal.”

A callout for the show is set to come very soon, so keep an eye out if you want to get stuck in.
