However, such hopes were dashed 3 years later, when James was ousted from power, and the Protestant William of Orange installed in his place. James fled to France to raise support for a rebellion, and then sailed to Ireland to launch his attack. He struck first at Derry, to which he laid siege for 15 weeks before finally being defeated by William’s forces at the Battle of the Boyne. The battle effectively ended James’s cause, and with it, the hopes of Catholic Ireland for the best part of a century.

While there is a statue of him in Dublin, his works were largely inspired by British and French writers, and he spent the majority of his life abroad. George Bernard Shaw was born in Dublin in 1856 and attended school in the city, but never went to college, as he came to loathe the organized education system. His literary style was, therefore, self-taught, and he spent his life studying and writing. He moved to England as a young man and lived much of his life in a village in Hertfordshire in England.

One of the country’s best-known early writers was satirist Jonathan Swift, who was born in Dublin in 1667. Educated at Trinity College, he left Ireland for England in 1688 to avoid the Glorious Revolution. He spent much of his adult life in London, returning to Ireland when he was over 50 years old, at which point he began to write his most famous works. The suffering of the poor in Ireland greatly affected him, but he translated his anger into dark, vicious humor. His tract A Modest Proposal is widely credited with inventing satire as we now know it.
