Ireland is well known for their Literature Heritage, with writers such as James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, Maeve Binchy or Oscar Wilde.

Ireland’s contribution to world literature is astounding. Irish novelists, poets and playwrights are recognised as pioneers and include no less than four Nobel prize winners. ( W.B Yeats , Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw, Seamus Heaney )
