Despite being the land of heartthrobs with Aidan Turner, Colin Farrell and Michael Fassbender, Irish men have once again been ranked the ugliest in the world.
International dating website Beautifulpeople.com has admitted less than one in 10 of the Irish single males who applied to upload their profiles on the site last year were accepted.
However, it’s looking up for Irish women who have been voted the ninth best-looking in the world.

Founder of the elitist site Greg Hodge insisted that Irish men would do better if they put more effort into their profile pictures before applying.
“Irish women have moved up the beauty rankings and deservedly so but Irish men are still pulling the country down overall,” he told the Mirror.
“Irish men would fare better if they put more effort into their profile pictures.
“A topless selfie shot in a seedy room or an image of them at the pub, pint in hand, does not go down well with women. Men are not just selling themselves, they are selling a lifestyle,” he explained.

“Irish men would do much better if they kept this in mind when creating their profiles.
“A polished image showing an interesting lifestyle would greatly improve their acceptance rates,” he added.
Although a bad day for the male race in Ireland, there is some consolation as both Polish and UK men faired bottom of the pile also.
