As one of the ancient Irish clans, the Byrnes and their namesakes the O’Byrnes have stamped an indelible mark on the pages of the nation’s history. Descended from the High Kings of Ireland, their ancestors also include doughty warriors and freedom fighters, while in more recent times they have gained distinction through a rich variety of endeavours. One the stage, Dublin-born Gabriel Byrne is the star of films that include Excalibur, Defence of the Realm, Stigmata, End of Days, and Jindabyne, while John Byrne is the Scottish artist and playwright who has written and directed an acclaimed series of screen and stage productions that include The Slab Boys and Tutti Frutti. He has also designed record covers for artistes that include the Scottish comedian and musician Billy Connolly, the singer and songwriter Gerry Rafferty and The Beatles. The stirring lives and times of the Byrnes of both yesteryear and today are presented here. Book Dimensions 10 × 0.4 × 14.5 cm
