Beautiful people say Irish men are the ‘undisputed ugliest in the world’

Irish men have been named as the ‘undisputed ugliest in the world’ by users of an elite dating website.

The LA based site beautifulpeople.com has over five million members around the world – but only the most beautiful are allowed to join.

People who want to sign up to the site have to win the approval of existing members who vote on whether an applicant is attractive enough to join them.

New data published by the site revealed that only 6% of Irish men were approved by the existing members.

The global average for new users being accepted is 20%.

While the men are not considered great looking, Ireland’s women fared far better. With a 35% acceptance rate, the ladies are tied with their French counterparts at 6th most beautiful in the world.

The most beautiful people in Ireland, according to acceptance rate, are Dubliners, followed by Cork, Galway and Belfast.

Unfortunately for the people of Limerick, they were considered the least beautiful.

The most beautiful people were Scandinavians, with Norway’s women and Sweden’s men topping their respective charts.

Greg Hodge, who is the managing director of beautifulpeople.com, didn’t pull any punches when he spoke about Irish men.

He said: “There are many examples of very handsome Irish men in Hollywood, such as Cillian Murphy, Colin Farrell, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Dornan.

“However, this is the exception and not the norm. Unfortunately, when you look at the stats, Irish men are the undisputed ugliest in the world. They really are in a league of their own.

“But Irish women are continuing to improve their beauty rankings. We looked closely into why Irish women are climbing and Irish men are falling in the beauty rankings.

“What we found is that a large proportion of Irish women are applying from Dublin – known to be one of the more beautiful areas for Irish inhabitants, whereas the majority of male applicants came from Belfast and Galway, as well as more rural areas which historically have housed some of Ireland’s least attractive inhabitants.”
