The Knock Marriage Introductions service, which helped form almost 1000 couples, is closing.
The agency was set up in the 1960's while emigration was rife in the west of Ireland.
Formerly known as the Knock Marriage Bureau, the service was set up to help Catholic singletons meet with the eventual goal of getting married.
To sign up, a person would provide details about their hobbies, physical features and the size of their farm.
A postcard sized photo was also required to gain a years membership - which cost €200.
Couples would be matched based on their personalities and be introduced over the phone.
The service made no promises that all who would apply would find a life partner
But over the years 18,000 couples met, with 925 couples going on to tie the knot.
The advent of the internet and online dating are being blamed for the services demise.
