Niall Toibin


Born - 21 November 1929, Cork, Ireland
Died - 13 November 2019

Solidly-built Irish actor with tousled brown hair and quizzical, almost philosophical features. After radio experience, he joined the famous Abbey players and spent much of the next two decades on stage. In his late thirties he entered films, a medium which frequently cast him as priests. After a debut in the Disney adventure movie Guns in the Heather (1968), he was seen in Ryan's Daughter (1970), Flight of the Doves (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), Philadelphia, Here I Come (1977), The Outsider (1979), The Sleep of Death (1980), Lovespell (1981), The Country Girls (1983), Reflections (1984), Eat the Peach (1986), Fools of Fortune (1990), Far and Away (1992), Frankie Starlight (1995), The Nephew (1998), Rat (2000), Veronica Guerin (2003) and Remains (2018), his last. He died 'after a long illness', a few days shy of his 90th birthday. His wife of 45 years died in 2002.
