Donegal accent makes us go weak at knees

PEOPLE from Donegal have the sexiest accent in Ireland, according to research.

Around 42pc of women and 39pc of men have admitted going weak at the knees at the dulcet tones of Donegal people.

The survey, conducted by match-making service Parship, also found that one-in-five women thought accents were important when choosing a partner.

"We all know the distinctive voice of our favourite celebrities," said the company's dating expert Avril Mulcahy. "They have a way of drawing you in and holding you. It might sound assertive, confident, powerful or just downright sexy."

While Donegal boasts the dreamiest dialect, Tipperary fared worst of all -- with just 1pc of women and 5pc of men describing it as the sexiest accent.

Galway-born Grainne Seoige was chosen Ireland's sexiest female celebrity voice, getting nearly half (48.7pc) the male vote.

And fellow Galway native Peter O'Toole topped the poll with one-third of Irish women voting his the sexiest male celebrity voice.
