Anna Manahan, Irish Actress, Is Dead at 84

Anna Manahan, an actress renowned in Ireland who earned belated recognition in the United States for her Tony-winning portrayal of a physically feeble but monstrously manipulative old woman in Martin McDonagh’s play “The Beauty Queen of Leenane,” died Sunday in Waterford, Ireland. She was 84 and lived in Waterford.

Ms. Manahan’s career spanned more than 60 years. She was a familiar figure on Irish television, most recently in the series FAIR CITY.
