The Making Of The Modern Man – A Post-Covid Story

New survey by Lough Erne Resort provides fresh insights on eve of Fathers’ Day.


A new survey conducted by Lough Erne Resort to celebrate Fathers’ Day on 19 June, has provided a host of fresh insights into the modern Irish man. According to a survey sample of more than 3,500 men and women from Northern Ireland and the Republic, the current top three traits of modern men have the family firmly at heart. Leading the way was making time for family and friends, with 26 per cent stating this is the most important to men, closely followed by providing for the family at 19 per cent.

Reassuringly, being open about feelings completed the top three male traits (13%), closely followed by discussing mental health (9%) and openly showing affection (8%).

Interestingly, more than half of the respondents believe the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant positive impact on modern men (55%), especially in nurturing more participation in the home, with just over 40 percent now more active in the kitchen and becoming a dab hand at household chores.

It seems the past two years has helped refocus male priorities too, with nearly a third stating that men are much more protective of loved ones now than before (31%) and the pandemic experience has helped men to open up, encouraging them to talk more about their thoughts and feelings (28%).

This year you can reward that special gentleman in your life with a Lough Erne Resort voucher that can be used to stay, spa, golf or dine.   As a thank you, everyone who spends from £59 – £99 can enjoy a complimentary bar of Boatyard Gin Chocolate.  If you spend from £100-£149 you can enjoy a complimentary 20CL Bottle of Boatyard Double Gin or if you choose to spend more than £150 you can enjoy both, with the compliments of Lough Erne Resort.
