"Two words of English from one of them, and I’m getting undressed. (Particularly if it’s Shay Given.)"
A satirical Cork-based agony aunt has revealed what many women around Ireland are thinking – Donegal mens’ accents are seriously seductive.
Ask Audrey, the spoof problem page of the Irish Examiner, has today explored the topic of our local menfolk, particularly the rural kind in our Gaeltachts. She openly admitted that they needn’t bother speaking Irish, because just two words are enough to make her swoon.
Donegal has proudly held the titled of Ireland’s sexiest accent year on year, so it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that it would have such an effect on this Cork lady.
Audrey’s comment appeared in a readers’ query about whether to send their child to the Gaeltacht. The Blackpool resident said: “I do be worried that he’ll come back speaking all funny.”
Audrey talks about the all sorts of carry on that happens at the Gaeltacht, before taking the subject to Donegal.
My friend, Lucy, sent her son to the Donegal Gaeltacht and he came back speaking Irish like a snake. (They’re mad for hissing.)
It’s a mystery to me why the men in Donegal bother with Irish at all. Two words of English from one of them, and I’m getting undressed. (Particularly if it’s Shay Given.)
For a bit of Friday fun, we want to know, who in Donegal has the ultimate sexiest accent? Answer in the comments below!
