Ireland: The Sexiest Nationalities for Men

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George's Channel. It is the second-largest island of the British Isles, trailing only Great Britain, the third-largest in Europe, and the twentieth-largest on Earth.


Politically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland, which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, which covers the remaining area and is located in the northeast of the island. In 2011 the population of Ireland was about 6.4 million, ranking it the second-most populous island in Europe after Great Britain. Just under 4.6 million live in the Republic of Ireland and just over 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

Some interesting facts are:
1. Ireland is the only country in the world that has a musical instrument – the harp – as its national symbol. The oldest known harp in existence is housed in Trinity College, Dublin. It dates back to at least 1300.


2. 70% of married Irish women would consider having an affair while on a foreign holiday without their spouse or children. 90% of all Irish men would do the same.


3. Raymond O'Brien was the shortest person in Irish history. The dwarf, who died in 1795, was one foot eleven inches tall.


4. RTE's "The Late Late Show" is the world's longest running talk show.


5. Irish marriages last an average of 13 years, although the majority do not end in divorce. Irish couples prefer to separate and live in sin with their new partners rather than go through costly legal proceedings.


6. The Newgrange passage tomb in County Meath was constructed around 3200 BC, making it more than 600 years older than the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, and 1,000 years older than Stonehenge.


7. Halloween was derived from an Irish festival called Samhain.


8. Irishman James Hoban  designed white house.


9. St. Patrick’s clearing of the Emerald Isle of snakes isn’t true. There have never been any snakes in Ireland.


10. According to the Irish birthday traditions, people hold the birthday child upside down and bump the head slightly on the floor. The bumps correspond to the age of the child. It is believed that this tradition brings good luck.


11. Titanic, the Unsinkable ship, which sunk in its maiden voyage, was made in Ireland.


12. Rotunda Hospital in Dublin is the longest continually operating maternity hospital in the world (1745).


13. Ireland’s oldest pub, Sean’s Bar, was founded some 900 years ago.


14. Ireland is the only country in the EU where abortion is still illegal.
