Obviously not the really terrible fake accents, but yes the so thick you're not sure it's still English? Yes, there are those people in Ireland. We met a couple artisans in some tiny towns that my husband literally couldn't understand, I was translating for him haha

Renees3 - You say that "there totally ARE people that sound like these accents". Not unless they were teasing you! :) The only authentic one there is Colin Farrell, but then he is Irish. Johnny Depp was particularly awful in Chocolat.

I thought Tom was the wrost, it was that over the top, hobbit sounding irish. I spent my honeymoon in Ireland and I will say that there totally ARE people that sound like these accents. It's definitely one of my favorite accents, always musical sounding, even Brad Pitt's from Snatch (which I LOVE)

I give it to Colin by default, but Brad Pitt had the most hillarious on-purpose mumbling Irish accent, ever in Snatch.

Colin definitely, Micheal J. Fox as Martin Seamus"Marty" McFly Sr. from The  Back to the Future Trilogy is a favorite.

Worst isn't any of Brad or Tom (and obviously couldn't be Colin)- the worst 'Oirish' accent of all time goes to Mr Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, for his dire turn in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Colin definitely has the advantage, but all the guys did pretty well, no? (Although, Brad was a bit hard to understand!)

Isn't it pretty obvious that Colin would be the best since he's actually Irish?
