Is Ireland headed for another baby boom?

Ireland could well be on the cusp of another baby boom, according to new figures from 11850 Directory Enquiries, which saw a massive increase in callers looking for dating agencies.

Figures from the company’s Autumn call lists has seen calls for dating agencies increase by a staggering 2650 percent. In line with the romance theme, it has reported a 44 percent increase in calls looking for jewellery designers, 31 percent increase in callers looking for details on priests and clergy and a 45 percent rise in callers looking for wedding cars.
