Famous Irish authors!!!

CULTURE OF IRELAND
There are very famous Irish writers like Bram Stoker, Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Thomas Kinchella. But, I admire more Jonathan Swift. So I will write some information for him. Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 19 October 1745) was an Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for the Whigs, then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin. He is remembered for works such as Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapier's Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity, and A Tale of a Tub.
