Ireland has produced some of the greatest writers in literature. From James Joyce and Oscar Wilde to Anne Enright and William Yeats. It is a dream destination for each and everyone who is seduced by archaic or modern literature. Any art student with a history, sociology, political science or a literature background will identify how Ireland has incorporated the arts within its national identity, right from fighting the British colonialism to achieving her independence. Hence, my interest in pursuing my higher education in Ireland couldn’t be more convincing.
