Does Brendan Gleeson Have Any Pets?

Morse (Dog)

Breed: Border Collie

Brendan Gleeson doesn’t have any reported pets in real life. But he did have a Border Collie named Morse for his role in The Banshees of Inisherin. Morse and Gleeson got along great on set. Not so much with Collin Farrel, who said that Morse bit him.
