From Irish Central, published today:
Big-hearted Gabriel Byrne showed yet again why he’s one of the nicest men in showbiz when he slipped into the month’s mind for the late writer Frank McCourt. The Emmy-nominated actor was deliberately low key as he arrived at the mass which took place at the Franciscan Church of the Holy Name of Jesus at 96th street in New York last night.
He was the only A-list actor to attend the mass which marked the first month of McCourt’s death. Poignantly, the author of “Angela’s Ashes” would have celebrated his 79th birthday yesterday.
Instead, his friends and family gathered to remember him and honor him . . .
