The Irish Times reports that Teri Hayden died last month. Ms. Hayden was Gabriel Byrne’s agent in Ireland for many years. The Agency today represents a wide array of Irish talent and Teri was its legendary leader. We send her family and her friends and colleagues our condolences during this heart-breaking time. She was such a stalwart friend and support for Gabriel over the years. I know he will miss her immensely. May she rest in peace. heart

Humanist funeral for agent to the stars

A private humanist funeral was held last week for Teri Hayden, agent to some of the most successful actors Ireland has produced, including Gabriel Byrne, Brendan Gleeson and his son Domhnall Gleeson. Derry-born Hayden, who was 75 when she died last month, was particularly close to Gabriel Byrne, with the actor crediting her for helping him to get into rehab and sober in the late 1990s.

Last year Brendan Gleeson dedicated the IFTA award he won for The Banshees of Inisherin to her. Her son, Karl, now runs her agency, which includes many of the country’s best-known stars of stage and screen, including Owen Roe, Marie Mullen and Bryan Murray. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis (May her faithful soul be at the right hand of God).
