I have heard he is both well regarded (very well) as an actor and a good man.
Haven't seen him in a film myself - or I don't think I have.

His tour de force was playing Giuseppe Conlon in the film "In the name of the father".
The film was based on the true life story of the Guildford Four.
He was nominated for an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role in the film.
R.I.P.
