RIGHT. It’s finally settled – Irish men are the sexiest in the world.

A new survey from MissTravel.com gives our buachaillí the top spot in a ranking of the sexiest nationalities.

However, the cailíní don’t get a look in. Irish women failed to make it into the top ten rankings. Kim Kardashian’s influence is clear, with Armenia taking the top spot, followed by a Rihanna-inspired Barbados.

Brazil dramatically and unexpectedly fell from first to seventh place.

The website polled more than 66,000 women and almost 45,000 men in America.

Obviously being a group of rational and sensible people, the females gave Irish males the #1 spot, followed by Australia. Here’s the full listing:

  1. Irish
  2. Australian
  3. Pakistani
  4. American
  5. English
  6. Scottish
  7. Italian
  8. Nigerian
  9. Danish
  10. Spanish

Thank you, Jamie Dornan. Here’s the ranking for women:

  1. Armenian
  2. Barbadian/Bajan
  3. American
  4. Colombian
  5. English
  6. Australian
  7. Brazilian
  8. Filipina
  9. Bulgarian
  10. Lebanese
