Paddy Cosgrave is to bring one of his Web Summit conferences back to Ireland.

Dublin is the next venue for MoneyConf, the company's financial technology conference currently held in Madrid.

"We're returning to Dublin," said a spokesman for Cosgrave.

"Brexit is transforming Dublin as a financial centre. It's in this moment that we're moving MoneyConf, which is already one of the world's leading financial services and fintech conferences, to our hometown of Dublin."

The event is considerably smaller than other conferences held by the company, with 1,000 attendees. However, it is attended by global companies such as Goldman Sachs, Visa and Alipay.

The return to Dublin also marks a thawing in the relationship between Mr Cosgrave and Irish authorities.
