(Decided to walk away from alcohol in his late 20’s – Cost too much!)
International actor Gabriel Byrne joined Ryan Tubridy on this week's Late Late Show following his recent win at the Irish Film and Television Awards held on Thursday of this week.
Byrne took home the Lifetime Achievement Award at the awards this week, and held an interview with Tubridy to speak candidly about both the high and low points of his career which has spanned five decades.
His first topic, his personal struggle with alcoholism in his twenties, struck a chord with the nation. It seemed that the topic was all too familiar with so many, that a call to action was suggested on Twitter.
