We are delighted to announce that actor Gabriel Byrne has pledged his support to the campaign to save The Quiet Man train station in Ballyglunin, Co. Galway. In a statement Gabriel Byrne said:
“The opening of The Quiet Man in Ballyglunin station is unforgettable. Barry Fitzgerald leads John Wayne and us the audience through a magic door into a mythical otherworld called Innisfree.
I’ve long admired the film and as well as narrating Sé Merry Doyle’s superb documentary I have presented The Quiet Man at the Metropolitan museum in New York.
The image of Ballyglunin station is known to millions all over the world and is part of film archaeology.
Please donate to www.ballyglunin.com or fund
it.ie and help to restore this iconic building not just for us but for future generations who will come to love The Quiet Man.”
