The Quiet Man Revisited exhibit at MoMA runs through June 3rd, here is some of the discussion after the film with Gabriel Byrne.  Patrick Fitzgerald discusses playing Conn the Shaughraun at Irish Rep; Michelle Woods reviews Edna O’Brien’s Saints and Sinners (O’Brien is at Symphony Space Wednesday), and Roddy Doyle’s The Dead Republic, featuring a fictional IRA consultant on The Quiet Man (there was, in fact, a real one); and Mike Farragher tells us what’s in his mailbag.  And the song of the week!
