No, not the little gold fellow. Oscar Wilde! My favorite author.
Oscar was born in Dublin and lived at Number 1, Merrion Square. There is a statue of him in Merrion Square Park, just opposite his house and many of his quotes are written on two pillars situated near the statue.
Oscar was the original master of the one-liner. If you have never read any of his quotes, or haven’t read any in a while, I will add a link to some. Oscar was terribly clever and had a wonderful wit!
