Yes, Fellow Byrneholics. Another year has flown by and it is time, once again, to celebrate someone’s birthday.
Whose birthday? Why, Gabriel Byrne’s birthday, of course!
Our favorite Irishman has been a whirlwind of activity all year. He worked on several film and television projects that took him to places both exotic and not-so-exotic, including Cardiff in Wales; Bristol and other cities in England; Montreal and Ontario in Canada; mysterious places in Mexico and, in the good old USA, New Orleans and Long Island. House-hunting in Ireland was a nice way to spend the holidays with his family. Wearing his activist hat, Gabriel maintained his long-standing commitment to the Irish Arts Center in New York City by assisting with their groundbreaking and co-hosting the annual Gala. Along the way, there were bookshops to be visited and restaurants to enjoy and people seemed happy to share their sightings of the peripatetic object of our affection with us.
And now it’s time to celebrate!
Byrneholics Everywhere wish Mr. Byrne all the best on his birthday: love, family, friends, intriguing and challenging projects, great colleagues, and all the goodness that life can bring.
It’s been a fantastic year and we look forward to many more with you, Gabriel! heart
