Hot in the city: Colin Farrell on location in London this week

Irish actor Colin Farrell - currently filming "London Boulevard" with Anna Friel - is the top choice for fantasy father in Ireland.

A whopping 23 percent of Irish women said they would like hard-partying Farrell to be the father of their child.

The studly actor came in ahead of Ireland's rugby star Rob Kearney and TV presenter Craig Doyle who came joint second, while Irish American comedian Des Bishop and rugby player Ronan O'Gara were tied third at 8 percent.

Oddly, Irish hottie rugby star Brian O'Driscoll sputtered across the line with just 6 percent of votes tallied.

The women didn't spell out why they wanted Farrell to be the fantasy father but I can only guess why!

However, his popularity might take a nose dive when the new movie "Liars (A-E)" hits the silver screen later this year.

"Liars" was penned by Farrell's former flame Emma Forrest and is based on their relationship and subsequent break-up.

Farrell hasn't said anything in public yet about the film but insiders tell IrishCentral that it really dishes the dirt.

Meanwhile, the Dublin heart-throb was looking mighty fine on set in London this week.

He plays a just-out-of-jail London criminal in the movie which also stars Friel and Keira Knightley.
