Gabriel Byrne la Brooklyn Heights Blog:

Brooklyn Heights resident/actor Gabriel Byrne is the latest patron of Belfast’s Aisling Ghear, an Irish language theater company.

The group has extended an invitation to the actor, who was born in Dublin, to visit them this year. The troupe’s GM, Carrie-Anne McAlonan-McCrudden, tells the Belfast Telegraph that having “avid” Irish speaking Byrne as their patron will be great for them.

She adds, “It’s nice for us, and nice for him to be associated with us as well. He has been very supportive of Irish language projects in the past…
It consigns some kind of artistic merit, that we have become established and reached a level of quality where we have a Hollywood actor associated with us.”
