A star of Silicon Valley has issued an damning verdict on Ireland in the context of whether his organisation will continue to expand its operations here.
Billionaire Matthew Prince, CEO of Cloudflare, which has data centres in Dublin and Cork, says the locals here are ”cold and unwelcoming.”
He says Irish people are “not welcoming” and that ”Ireland isn’t a country people would want to move to.”
Asked as to whether he would consider expanding Cloudflare’s operations here, he provided a stark response “No one wants to live in Ireland unless they’re Irish.”
He didn’t spare the food here either or the weather (which he admitted isn’t really in our favour or our control.) His damning verdicts on our collective inhospitably went down badly, funnily enough!
