Hi, this is my experience of an Irish dating agency, where I have got a very poor quality service.
I am a 42 year old single male. I paid €300 to Amourarrow for 10 dates in January 2015. I met Asta who is based in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo, and of Latvian descent. She was a very persuasive and convincing saleswoman.
Between Jan and August 2015 she gave me 8 phone no's. I met 2, but the others declined or stopped responding, or were totally unsuitable. I mentioned this to a friend, who told me that this was a scam. Asta would get other Eastern European women to go on 1 or 2 dates with Irish guys, and then cease contact.
I found that she did not answer or return my phone calls from Sept 15, for 3 months. When I did get to talk to her, she said I must ring during office hours. Yet our one and only meeting was on a Saturday morning.!
I have found online a Cork Lady who had a similar experience. She found that the same agency was arranging for her to meet gents in their 60's, and one who was married. Again, a very poor quality service.
Now I will never get my money back, but I at least want to highlight this issue, so that other Irish single people are less likely to be exploited.
Thanks Mark


I ordered a replacement Toshiba battery, on 1st June 2015, and it arrived yesterday 10th June from Germany.
I was concerned when I saw the negative reviews dating from 2011, 2012. I paid 24GBP, about 35 euro. I am very happy with replacement battery, and now I have a 90min run time, instead of a 2 minute dud cutting out. Batteries do age, and deteriorate over time, and I suspect mine was 8 years old.

Replacement Laptop Battery for TOSHIBA PA3450U-1BRS
Item# LTPTB053.
The transaction was conducted through Paypal. Emails were answered at 2am/3am, so I do accept the responder is based in the Far East.

Update *** 28th Sept 2015 ****
Folks, I spoke too soon. I used the laptop on battery for 1.5 hours 2 weeks ago, and it died. Plugged in mains, and now battery is 0% after a deep discharge, and won't charge at all. Flat as a pancake! Need mains full time. I got approx 10 weeks out of it, but it died at the first deep discharge.

Update *** 19th Nov 2015 ****
Ordered a battery from Laptopchargers Info *******@laptopchargers.ie, who are Ireland based. 39.99 + 7 shipping. 4 working days turnaround. It is going very good after 6 weeks of usage.

Regards, JJM,
Galway, Ireland
