Irish who are more famous/acclaimed abroad than here.

Any examples of notable Irish people who are more popular or acclaimed outside of Ireland than here? One prime example would be Enya, she has a big following on the Continent, Germany , Italy etc yet here shes largely known as that strange lady who lives alone in a castle and makes celtic new age-y music (famously mocked in the film Intermission)

Jimeoin.


He's massive in Australia, yet relatively unknown here.

Google him.

There's a guy from Co Clare called Gari Deegan he's doing very well in Dubai.

I think he's a presenter over there and was on some talent show here in Ireland.

That’s more due to the fact he emigrated and lives there, comes back up for the summer and the Edinburgh Fringe. I saw him on Soccer AM a few years back and wondered where he went to.

Gareth Steenson, ulsterman playing at out half for Exeter Chiefs, definitely good enough to play for Ireland.

Primordial. They're pretty big elsewhere, but are largely unknown here.
