Remembering Irish Writers for St. Patrick’s Day

Posted in Revolutionary Holiday, Revolutionary Irish Writers, Revolutionary Leprechauns, Revolutionary St. Patrick's Day on March 17, 2010 by Ryan Shattuck

I apologize there wasn’t a blog post yesterday. It was planning on being here, but it had to go pick up the kids from soccer practice.

Like many writers, I have an affinity for other authors. As the author behind the runaway bestseller, Revolutions for Fun and Profit!, I understand the sacrifice, work, and alcoholism hard work that goes into writing a book.

As today is St. Patrick’s Day, I would like to take a moment to remember some of the important Irish writers who have influenced my writing:

Jonathan Swift

James Joyce

George Bernard Shaw

William Butler Yeats

Oscar Wilde
