CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE WELCOME
Our aim is to promote Irish literature and the arts by various means, such as public readings, stage presentations, lectures and friendly get togethers, and even musical evenings for the enjoyment and entertainment of all those interested, not only in the works of our great writers and artists, but also in Irish folklore.
For a comparatively small country, Ireland has made a disproportionate contribution to world literature in both the Irish and English languages. The island’s most widely-known literary works are those of James Joyce, Brian Friel, Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde.
Let us not forget that Ireland also boasts four Nobel Prize winners for literature:
- W B Yeats 1923
- George Bernard Shaw 1925
- Samuel Beckett 1969
- and Seamus Heaney 1995
MIAS will be performing two extracts from the play, The Last Burning – the martydrom of Bridget Cleary 1895, on Friday, 10 November at 20.30 hrs, at the Auditorium du Collège Charles III, Avenue de l’Annonciade, Monte-Carlo. Read more…

MIAS was invited by the Princess Grace Irish Library to provide a short performance on St Patrick’s Day this year, together with a musical interlude by the Academie de Musique, which was filmed.
We were very honoured to give a command performance for H.S.H Prince Albert of Monaco.
