Poll: Which Actor Is the Pride of Ireland?

In 2020, the Irish Times took up the daunting task of compiling an all-time list of the best Irish film actors. They factored questions of star wattage, career longevity, national identity and weighted performance in film over television and theater. The final results yielded 50 undeniably great actors, 28 men and 22 women. While, one may nitpick about the actual order or the inclusion or exclusion of stars in the last few spots. The list is a solid snapshot in time and there is likely no better judge of the best Ireland has to offer. Source: The Irish Times
