Ireland is a country rich is literary history. Joyce, Shaw, Swift, Wilde, Beckett and Kavanagh are just a few of the literary luminaries who were from these shores.  While the tradition is being maintained by the many featured authors on writing.ie, it is important to remember the guiding lights of Irish literature.  On these pages we aim to show how the work of Ireland’s literary greats still resonates with today’s readers and writers.
