Domhnall Gleeson gushes about his Irish mammy

"She keeps things together"

 Domhnall Gleeson has been speaking very highly of his Irish mammy, Mary Gleeson.

The star of Goodbye Christopher Robin has been busy promoting his movie with co-star Margot Robbie, which saw him appear on The Graham Norton Show and The Late Late Show over the past few weeks.

Domhnall’s famous father, Brendan Gleeson and brother Brian both also have busy careers, but the 34-year-old has revealed that their mother “keeps things together” for the family.

“My mother is every bit as important to our family as my father,” he told The Irish Sun.

Both of them are fantastic parents. Keeping a family together is pretty artistic too and takes a lot of creativity, I would think.

“My mom’s just a brilliant woman. She’s her own person, there’s no way to describe her quickly.

“She’s amazing. I couldn’t have a better mom. You know, Irish guys and their mothers is a thing.

“We’re all mad about our moms, but I’d take mine over any other one.

“She’s the business and very supportive and realistic at the same time.

“In a way, we all manage the family collectively, because if something matters you have to be careful with it, so everybody plays their part.

“But certainly Mom keeps things together as everyone else flies away. My dad was away for five months doing Mr Mercedes, Brian is over on the West End and two of my brothers were living in Canada for a while and I was in London for a good bit.

“So at times, it’s just her and Seamus, the Cocker Spaniel.”
