Mary Kenny: Listen, girls: don't waste your youth on an older man

It has been reported that theatre impresario and all-round national treasure Michael Colgan, aged 61, is 'stepping out', with a new girlfriend, the ravishing blonde Louisa Carroll, aged 29. Ms Carroll is quite a theatrical powerhouse herself, having founded the award-winning Jouissance Productions in 2008. Jouissance, amusingly, is the French slang for orgasm.

It is said that Dublin's theatrical circles now recognise Mr Colgan and Ms Carroll as a couple, but the relationship has 'raised eyebrows'. I find this hard to believe. I imagine the consensus of views would be 'the best of luck to them'. And the consensus of views among men would certainly be -- to any chap aged 61 'stepping out' with a cutie of 29 -- 'good for him'!

It is, of course, possible that Mr Colgan's former girlfriend, Noelle McCarthy, may have a dissenting opinion, though we cannot know.
