NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 17: The Irish Repertory Theater co-director Ciaran O'Reilly, actor Gabriel Byrne, and Irish Repertory Theater co-director Charlotte Moore attend the presentation of the 2011 Eugene O'Neill Lifetime Achievement Award at The Manhattan Club at Rosie O'Grady's on October 17, 2011 in New York City.

Irish actor Gabriel Byrne was critical of year-long festival and cultural celebration, The Gathering 2013 on Matt Cooper's Last Word programme on Today FM. Sadly much of the media fuss surrounding Byrne's views on the event detracted from what was an exceptionally frank and thoughtful interview by Byrne on American politics, Storm Sandy, In Treatment, his daily life living in Manhattan, his latest projects, and economics and culture in America and Ireland. You can hear the whole interview here (starts about 43 mintes in).
