THERE’S JUST something about an Irish accent.
Maybe it’s the sense of warmth it conveys or a feeling of roguish fun that accompanies that distinctive Irish brogue but whatever the reason, there are few accents that compare.
That might be why the Irish accent continues to rank among the sexiest on the planet.
