Eileen Colgan


Born - 20 January 1934, Enniskerry, County Wicklow, Ireland
Died - 10 March 2014

Light-haired actress of warmth and knowing looks, feisty in her younger days but a formidable character player as the years rolled by, and always a stalwart of Dublin theatre, although she was also busy on UK TV from the early sixties. Films few but eye-catching in most of them: Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx (1970), My Left Foot (1989), Fools of Fortune (1990), Far and Away (1992), The Secret of Roan Inish (1994), Oliver Twist (1997), Angela's Ashes (1999), Mystics (2003), Tara Road (2005), I Sell the Dead (2008) and A Film with Me in it (2008), her last, although she continued appearing on TV until 2013.
