Dublin (CNN) – According to an old Irish saying,"in Dublin you can't throw a stick without hitting a poet."
James Joyce, W.B. Yeats and Oscar Wilde are just some of the writers the city has produced over the centuries.
In recognition of its past and present achievements, the Irish capital was recently named as one of six UNESCO Cities of Literature.
CNN's Jim Boulden travelled to Dublin to see how the designation is boosting the city's morale.
