Can you guess which Irish county has the sexiest accent?

The Irish county with the sexiest accent has been revealed and it's ... Derry! And with famous stars such as singers Dana and Nadine Coyle, actors James Nesbitt and Roma Downey, and poet Seamus Heaney, is it any wonder?

In at number 2 was Kildare, whilst Derry’s near neighbor, Donegal, was third in the list.
