We are trying something new here at Byrneholics: locally-hosted videos! Here is the first. Click on the link below.
He talks with host Pat Kenny about winning the Golden Globe and how he feels about being called “sexy” as a result of his work in In Treatment.
For the most part, however, he talks about the Irish Hospice Foundation and the need for palliative care and dignity for those who are dying in Ireland. He also shares his views on the Ryan Report.
So here is Gabriel Byrne: thoughtful, articulate, inspirational. And sexy.
Note the card he has in his pocket. We all know who Mannix Flynn is now and the work they have done together is wonderful.
“I do believe that when you speak out about something, the disease of silence starts to lose its power.”
Not long after this appearance, Mr. Byrne was named the first Cultural Ambassador for Ireland. You can see why, I’m sure.
Please give this locally-hosted video some time to load. If there is a problem with synchronization, pause the video and then hit play again. That seems to fix things.
Enjoy and please share your thoughts in the comments section.
Many thanks to Linda and Ara for their assistance!
