1. Dublin Millenium Literary Parade Marker
Inscription.
One of Dublin's major contributions to European
civilisation has been in the area of
literature. It is remarkable that so many
writers of world renown were born here
including three winners of the Nobel Prize
for Literature. This Literary Parade honours
some of our distinguished sons of literature.

St. Patrick's Park has been restored thanks
to the generosity of Jameson Irish Whiskey,
and the Publicans of Dublin.

 
Erected 1988 by City of Dublin, Jameson Distillery, and the Publicans of Dublin.
