Colin Farrell - His father and uncle were both professional athletes, and for a while, it looked like Colin would follow in their footsteps. However, he tried to join a band, but could make it due to the fact that he was tone deaf. After dropping out of The Gaiety School of Acting, Farrell was cast in "Ballykissangel", a BBC television drama, and the rest is history. The big drinking, drug taking, girl lov'n Irishman cleaned up his act and manages to charm the pants off everyone he meets. We particularly love him as he has donated his salary for 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' to Heath Ledger's daughter Matilda (who was left nothing in a will that had not been updated in time). Awwwwww!
Jonathan Rhys Meyers - Born in Dublin with a heart condition, he grew up with a tumultuous childhood, spending some time in an orphanage and being permanently expelled from school at age 16. Happy to be out of school, he began spending time in a local pool hall where he was discovered by casting agents. I first fell for him when he played Elvis Presley in the mini series ELVIS. His most memorable role prior to 'The Tudors' was 'Bend It Like Beckham' in which he played the girl's soccer coach. Jonathan is currently making girls swoon with his portrayal of Henry the eighth - and my does he like lovely in a pair of tights!
Patrick Dempsey - Who can forget all the fabulous, yet dorky roles Patrick played in the 80's? Those of us who were big fans of 'Can't Buy Me Love' couldn't quite believe our luck when he appeared decades later as McDreamy. Patrick has worked constantly and consistently in the intervening years and it's great to see him achieve such success. Patrick is married with young children but his first marriage is the most interesting! At the time of his first marriage, he was 21 and his bride was 48. She was the MOTHER of his best friend! My, my Patrick - you look sooo innocent but clearly you are not.
So there are your lovely Irish boys in all their glory. Start deciding who you would shag, who you'd shack up permanently with and who you'd kick to the other-world. Can't wait to see which way you go. Remember you must choose one for each category.
