Ireland may have been capped by the domineering power of Great Britain but this ‘emerald’ country on British Isles has more to it than just beer and revelry. It is when you study closely about Irish culture and tradition that you would realise the country has been the address of some of the world famous men and women. From ingenious inventors to creative litterateurs, national heroes to prodigious leaders, it has an impressive lot of people with extraordinary achievements and accomplishments. What’s more, the country is not just about wit and wisdom – Ireland has produced some of the most talented and ingeniously gifted actors and actresses. Topping the list is Pierce Brosnam, popularly identified as James Bond, from the 1994 to 2005 Bond series. But that is not all. George Brent, Kenneth Branagh, Sarah Bolger, Daniel Day Lewis, Alison Doody, Brenda Ficker, Barry Fitzgerald, Aidan Turner and Barry McGowen are all Irish film and theatre personalities who have made their way into our hearts through their bountiful baggage of excellent works.
