The Arts Council has sent its congratulations to Colin Farrell and Gabriel Byrne for their success at the 66th Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

Mary Cloake, Director of the Arts Council said: "We are delighted with the news that Colin Farrell and Gabriel Byrne have won these prestigious awards. The success of these fine Irish actors underscores once again the high regard in which Irish artists are held at home and abroad.

"Today, the taxpayer can also take a bow. The continued high achievement of Irish arts on the international stage is a tribute to the vibrant, creative society in which we now live, and we recognise the vital role that public investment in the arts has played in sustaining this."
