What a year it has been for you!

You followed your Golden-Globe winning performance in the first season of In Treatment with a second season that, in many ways, surpassed it, with its sharp story-lines and enthralling acting. You took Paul Weston to the next level, no doubt about it, and Season Three has us all poised for fireworks. Gabriel Byrne: Stories From Home made its way around the festivals to much acclaim and admiration (no matter what you might think–everyone loves it!). Your plans to make, not one, but two intriguing films in the near future have created intense anticipation and excitement. And to top it all off, you have become the first Cultural Ambassador for Ireland!

Whoever said life took a more leisurely pace when one reached sixty? They have obviously never met you.

In addition to all of these obvious achievements, you have touched the hearts and souls of so many of your fans, who appreciate your warmth, candor, and honesty, and who root for you as you take on more challenges and projects in the future.

So, breithlá sona duit, mo ghrá (if I may be so bold), many thanks, hearty congratulations, and cheers to you on your birthday. Welcome to the Silver Fox Years, Mr. Byrne!

    Dear Sir,
    I’ve heard you say in interviews you thought the camera photographed the soul. Well, like everyone else here, I like what I see!
    I wish you all the best for this new phase in your life you seem to have embarked on. And if you don’t mind, I will keep tagging along ;)

    Happy Happy Birthday Gabriel, may it be the best ever!

    I imagine that you will have a good old Irish knees up tonight so have a blast :-)

    I know there are wonderful things coming from you in 2010 and I can’t wait, you are just so good at your craft, I could watch and listen to you for ever!

    You won’t remember me, but I sincerely hope we get a chance to meet again, but if not, that’s okay too. Thank you for making my life richer, yes you did, and do that :-)

    God Bless you, and yours, on this very special day.

  15. A very happy birthday to Mr. Gabriel Byrne!! Who knew 60 could look so good…
    Today I am remembering him the way I first saw him, as Byron in that ‘Gothic’ film…and once I find that pinky ring my connection to the infamous Byron will be forever sealed.
    I also would like to thank Gabriel for sparking my passion for love again, though I remain a sceptic of such matters essentially.

    “Then let us live, and love
    So that people would say
    The Devil as well as God
    Is an Englishman”. -Byron, 1816

    “I want your love and all your lover’s revenge
    You and me could write a bad romance…” -Lady GaGa, 2010

    ;)

  16. May you day be bright and beautiful!

    Blessings on you Mr Byrne, light and love.

  17. Happy Birthday to you Mr. Byrne; such a passionate and inspirational being.

    You have helped me in ways you would never have thought, keep doing what you do.

    I wish you health and happiness for many years to come; enjoy being 60!

    Love and Kisses

    I want towish Gabriel Byrne a veryu happy and enjoyable 60th Birthday. You are such a intelligent, articulate and kind and decent man. You alwaays give Your Fans the greatest gift of all that is priceless. That being Your tremendous talent charisma and Your Time and care with each passing and progressive project. wheter it be a Movie, Telivision Show, or a Book. Or producing and Directing a movie that is a project/vehicle for other Actors/Actresses in The Performing Arts Profession. I as a new fans of Yours are alwasy amazed and spellbound, tosat nothing but captivated by simply watching You what You do best ACT. Actors like You Who are dark, Brooding and Intense who can melt paint off of walls with just being On-Screen are a very small Minority. Here is cheers toyou, and looking forward to waht ever You may do next!
    Lori Furlow.

  19. Best wishes for the year ahead, Gabriel. May heaven`s gates open and all good things pour over you, and may all your hopes and dreams for the next (60) year(s) come true! :-)
