A grandfather has taken his grandson’s romantic life into his own hands – with a personal ad seeking a wife for the 25-year-old.

An ad placed by the 89-year-old in family magazine Ireland’s Own has been causing a stir among readers.

The ad, entitled Sydney Calling, highlights his grandson’s many good points in a bid to find a woman who will take a trip down the aisle with him.

“My grandson is 25-years-old, handsome clever, good sense of humour, works (European/Irish/UK), wife wanted for him with photo.

“Must be moral, loving, kind, want large family, love, happiness.

“[I] want him settled. I’m now 89 years,” the touching ad reads.

It’s not clear if the young man in question is in the know about the ad placed by his eager grandfather.

The ad was first spotted by Community Manager Darragh Doyle and posted to Twitter.
