US playwright Bonnie Greer says she would have no issue moving to Ireland, except the weather.
The author and journalist has previously said people in the United Kingdom do not seem to understand Ireland.
She claimed people in the UK are not aware of history here or in Northern Ireland, and seem to be stuck in 1939.
Her comments came after a clip of her saying that 'Ireland owes the UK nothing' during a Brexit debate on BBC's Question Time went viral in 2019.

She visited Scotland in 1986 as part of a production at the Edinburgh Festival and never left.
Bonnie told The Hard Shoulder Americans generally have no issue with packing up and moving on.
"There's a wave right now that's going on in America, where young black Americans - African-Americans - are saying they're going to move, they're going to ex-pat, they're going to leave.
"I guess most of them are going to come to Europe, because there's always a dream about Paris for African-Americans.
"But that's a very American thing to do, it makes me laugh - no other people, except refugees, will say 'Well I'm just going to pack up and leave'.
"And that's the most American thing, Americans we think we can do it.
"And that's the outrageousness of us, and also I guess what we are as well.
"It never entered my mind that I couldn't live in the United Kingdom - of course I found out that it wasn't that easy - but it just didn't enter my mind.
"So that's the American part and that's what being an American is".
'They treated him like a person'
But Bonnie says she had more connections to Britain than she realised.
"My dad was in this country during World War II as a young serviceman in a segregated army.
"He had an experience here with people who were not people of colour that was much more positive for him than what he'd suffered in the United States.
"And of course not to make that romantic, or glossy, because you have to put that all in relation to what service people of colour, serving the British army and military, had to endure.
"But he didn't know about that - he just knew about the fact that all kinds of people, who were white, treated him like a person".
Asked if she would move again, she says she has several places in mind.
"I'd probably want to find somewhere in Nigeria to live, or I probably would go to France.
"I probably would live in Ireland, except I have to find somewhere warm - I like warmth.
"And that's one thing France has is a warm space".
Asked why France would hold a special place for her, she says: "The literature, the food, they're not so afraid to talk about beauty.
"The French - and the Nigerians - are not afraid to talk about beauty as a value, and it's very difficult to talk about that in Britain".
