Life is a juggling act for farmer and student, Alanagh Loftus, one of six singletons hoping to find romance in RTÉ’s 1 newest series, Love in the Country.
The 20-year-old hails from a sheep enterprise in Roscommon, is a full-time veterinary nursing student at TUS Athlone Campus and works in her local pub.
She plays an active role in the running of her family farm and describes her involvement as “part-time on the farm, but half full-time on the farm too”.
She explains: “My father passed away when I was 13, so we were faced with that kind of thing of rent or sell the farm, or get on with it.”
“I think at that stage, I realised that I really like farming and did not want to let go of it,” she explains.
“We get up at 6 am and check the sheep before we go to make sure they are all alive. There are always jobs to do, so you will never find yourself not busy,” she laughs.
Traits and interests
Based on the Fremantle Media reality show, Farmer Wants a Wife, she is hoping to find a match to embrace country living with.
“I am not afraid of hard work and the craic. It is nice to have someone along the way who is not going to hold you back.”
“So, someone who understands that I am driven and want to do what I want to do, so I can be headstrong like that.”
“I am looking for someone that is good craic, easy going, does not mind getting mucked in or slagging; I can give the slagging back and do not mind that at all.”
When describing what she believes would be her perfect match, she remarks:
“Even just a male version of Roy [sheepdog], who is loyal, dependable, and you tell him to go away, and he does. He helps me with the sheep and is good at cuddling, so is fair competition.”
