For the love of Ireland 🇮🇪

Okay folks: why aren’t any fintechs in Ireland? :ireland:

But which I mean a proper, localised version of a decent consumer, personal current account, fintech.

Basically, I think that either Monzo or Starling would clean up. So why aren’t they bothering? Is it because of the population (Irish population is around the same as the whole Monzo customer base)? Or is it the banking licence / Brexit thing?

I know that Revolut is fairly popular over there. But they’re not really a bank (or are they running off their Lithuanian licence being EU and all that)?

Possibly the EU bit, I guess.
