Irish men among least attractive in the world, dating website claims

We may have the likes of Jamie Dornan and Colin Farrell among our handsome alumni - but according to an online dating site, Irish men are considered among least attractive in the world.

The website, Beautiful People, only allows people to join it if its existing members approve.

It has found that while Irish women are considered the most beautiful, their male counterparts do not do so well getting access.

Almost a third of female Irish applicants made it onto the site.

But less than one in 10 Irish men that applied to the website were let in.

BBC NI presenter Barra Best was quick to comment on the findings.

"Dead on, we're all stunners," he deadpanned in a tweet.
