A round of appreciative applause and a long, slow wolf whistle, please, for Irish men – they’ve been voted the sexiest in the world.

This is according to MissTravel.com, a US-based travel and dating website. In May, the site announced the results of a survey that polled “over 110,000 American singles to discover the most desired nationalities.”

Out of the 66,309 women polled, 7,862 chose Irish men as the sexiest international specimens. In second place, but trailing by over 1,000 votes were Australians, followed by Pakistani men, American men and English men.

Perhaps we have “Mr. Fifty Shades of Grey” himself, Northern Ireland-born Jamie Dornan, to thank for this achievement?

Women placed a premium on listening. When asked which qualities affected their decision most, 49% responded with “accent.”

With that criterion in mind, it isn’t any wonder Irish lads raked in the votes.

Check out the complete results below:
