Billionaire Matthew Prince, whose Cloudflare company has data centres in Dublin & Cork, says Irish people are 'not welcoming' and that Ireland isn’t a country people would want to move to. 

In response to a question about whether he would consider expanding Cloudflare’s operations here he said: ‘No one wants to live in Ireland unless they’re Irish’ and that we ‘are not a very welcoming community to outsiders. And the weather and food suck.’ 

Andrea spoke with many callers on their views.
