We asked the women of Donegal if they would ask a man to marry them on February 29 and here are the results

Over 80 percent of women, that answered our poll, said that they would not ask a man to marry them on February 29. 

Once every four years, an old Irish tradition dictates that women can propose to the man she loves during a leap year. 

Our results found that 82 percent of women wouldn't propose to a man on that date while 18 percent of women were eager to.

The poll did generate a lot of banter and laughter which everyone enjoyed.
