    Dear Gabriel,
    Sometimes I catch myself thinking of your smart talk, those genius hints on every subject that only you can come up with…
    Oh dear, falling in love with you was not unjustified, you are a confident and intelligent man, you don’t feed only on newspapers like most men nowadays. Oh no!
    You have a remarkable personality, and your education clearly comes back then from the cradle. You also have a strong disposition that helps you to succeed in your undertakings. Your future life will never be a mere repetition of the past. Your creativity doesn’t rely on only things kept in memory.
    You don’t worry about keeping what you gain. You think that living the present is more important than saving for the future. You trust on what’s life has been keeping for you. You are certainly a differentiated person and I admire you for all of it.
    I believe you can make any dreams come true, ever since the day I saw your beautiful blue eyes and your sexy smile, you’ve been soothing my heart, even if you don’t recognize it, because you don’t know me… It doesn’t really matter, does it?
    My heart pulses only for you, and this simple words express my admiration and all those things that I wouldn’t have the courage to talk to you, if it would be possible a day. But if it would be, you’d better know it’s all where it should be: inside my heart.
    Happy Birthday! I ask to God to bless you everyday in your life.
    Andrea VelByrne

    Hey Gabriel, hope you had a Happy Birthday! You always look so dreamy; I’ve thought so ever since I saw you as D’Artagnan in “The Man in the Iron Mask” as a young teen, and I still think so now at age 26. If you’re ever in Tallahassee, FL, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll show you around! :) Yes, maybe a little too much wishful thinking!

    Oh well. Anyway, I also watch “In Treatment” whenever I can, and it’s taught me a lot about how I should behave in therapy since I felt nervous about it because I’d never been before. You’re great! Keep up the good work.

    <3 Christina

    I hope you had a great day for your birthday, Gabriel. :-) I wish you all the best for that year ahead of you.

  19. My dearest sweet Gabriel,
    Happy belated birthday to you, so sorry that I was unable to express my excited birthday wishes for you the day of but as it turned out, I was committed to unexpected family obligations and I just couldn’t do it yesterday… In any case, Mr. Byrne, rest assured that I was thinking of you yesterday and hoping that your birthday was a special one (like you). I did not get around to making any kind of a cake; however I do have a little cake symbol in one of my calendars at home, marking the day (as if i would forget!).
    We never really know how much time we are going to have here; however Gabriel you have a lot to be proud of and you have achieved a lot in your lifetime. I admire your strength and stability; the way you press on during difficult times is impressive to me and I want to be able to do that too. I may not always be on this site, I may not always know how to respond to something but rest assured you are in my heart and thoughts always, and I wish you a long happy future.

  20. Happy belated birthday!!!

  21. I meant to note that May 12 is also the official birthday of Byrneholics as well! We are 3 years old. Woo hoo! Champagne for everyone, especially Lara and Ara, who keep the place up and running smoothly for us all! Cheers!

  22. Happy birthday to Gabriel and to the Byrneholics!

    I wish all the best for Gabriel in the future and hope he will continue to use his talent both as a great actor but also as a great
    Cultural Ambassador for Ireland!

    The world needs more people like Gabriel!

    Thanks to the Byrneholics for creating this site 3 years ago.
    It is great to have this place to visit to read about and to write about Gabriel and his work.
