A teacher from the Republic of Ireland has been turned down for a job in South Korea due to the “alcoholism nature” of Irish people.

Katie Mulrennan, from County Kerry, had applied for a teaching job in Seoul.

She was told by an agency that their client did not hire Irish people due to their perceived drinking habits.

The 26-year-old told the BBC that she could not believe the email was real at first.

“Usually when you apply for a job and they don’t want you, they don’t send a reply,” she said. “Or they tell you they would prefer someone from North America, because some schools prefer the accent. But this reply was a first. When I got the email, it was so abrupt and short. I actually laughed when I read it initially. Then I wanted to write back a really angry response. In the end I took a deep breath and sent back a reply, that was a little bit sarcastic as I couldn’t believe the email I had received. But I haven’t heard anything back since.”
