Irish accent voted sexiest in the world

With its economy disappearing down the swanny faster than a stash of nose whizz when the police call to the door, Ireland has received some good news with the Irish lilt being voted the sexiest in the world in a poll of 5,000 women.

The survey, carried out by www.OnePoll.com, saw the Irish accent pip the Italians into second place while the Scottish brogue took the coveted third spot. A spokesman for OnePoll spoke about the results.

"It is good news for the Irish that they have come top. They have been in and around the top five for years now. But high-profile stars such as Colin Farrell have helped bring the accent more to the fore."

Surprisingly, the French accent suffered a fall from grace and is now back in fourth position: "The French accent is nowhere near as popular as it used to be. You can probably blame Nicolas Sarkozy for that, he has single-handedly changed the perception of how the world sees French men."

OnePoll's top ten accents: 1. Irish 2. Italian 3. Scottish 4. French 5. Australian 6. English 7. Swedish 8. Spanish 9. Welsh 10. American
