Irish people asking Google: What is love?

Irish people are apparently looking to the internet to answer to that age-old question "What is love?".

The most frequently asked 'What is' question in Ireland is "What is love?", according to new research on our Google habits.

When it comes to upskilling, Irish people are most interested in learning how to draw, kiss and crochet better.

Details on Ireland's most "googled" items show that more of us searched for information on the Irish football team's miserable Euro 2012 campaign this year than Katie Taylor's success at the London Olympics.

In terms of celebrities, we googled Craig Doyle most often, followed by actors Michael Fassbender and Liam Neeson.

Benidorm topped the list of destinations searched, ahead of Paris and Berlin.

While our favourite shows on the box are Chris O'Dowd's 'Moone Boy', along with 'Homeland' and 'Love/Hate'.
