Viewers loved Lynn Harvey on tonight’s episode of First Dates Ireland

Dublin light flyweight Lynn Harvey [2(2)-1(0)] was a knockout with viewers on tonight’s episode of First Dates Ireland.

The Kilbarrack fighter won plaudits for her straight-talking and down-to-earth style as well as, of course, her good looks.

Harvey sat down for a friendly meal with bodybuilder Eamonn Baggott and, despite her date being a tad forgetful, seemed to have a good time.

The viewing public loved Lynn and took to Twitter to express their admiration.

Some also pointed out Lynn’s similarity to MTV presenter Laura Whitmore.

Alas, Harvey felt that the two weren’t a match, and decided against going for a second date – although her forthrightness won her lots of respect, as she told the smitten Eamonn straight out, rather than allowing him go first.

Harvey’s next fight takes place on Saturday February 25th at the National Stadium in Dublin, where she takes on Maribel De Sousa on the Red Corner Promotions ‘Unfinished Business’ card.

Tickets cost €40 (unreserved) and €60 (ringside) and are available from Lynn.
