One important way of penetration of Irish literature and culture in Spain was through the northwestern part of the country, Galicia in particular. Geographical, historical and ideological facts favoured a trend towards everything connected with Ireland. Therefore, Irish literature was studied, translated and became a model for some Galician critics and writers. One reason for this approach was entirely ideological: Ireland stood for a representative of the Celtic countries and Galicia was one of their members, or so they claimed. The implications of the Irish Literary Renaissance were carefully followed and, as a consequence, brought about cultural and literary manifestations inspired by the Irish movement.
