Fame of the Irish
Fame spreads from all over the world, but Hollywood and the music industry has Ireland to thank for some of its brightest stars. You wouldn’t know it from most of his roles, but prettyboy Colin Farrel was born in Castleknock, Ireland. Joining him from the land of Saints and Scholars is former face of Agent 007, Pierce Brosnon, Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch, U2 frontman, Bono, and unforgettable novelists like Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, and Jonathan Swift. Let us also not forget actor Michael Gambon, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, novelist Oscar Wilde, WWE wrestlers Sheamus and Becky Lynch, and YouTube’s own gaming heartthrob Jacksepticeye.
