Barry has said:
Heroin came into Dublin, and it caught every family. My mother was one of the unlucky ones. She got caught on it, then she passed away… [He and his brother were subsequently raised by their grandmother] She’s a tough one… I’ll come home off a film set where I’m getting pampered, and I’ll get a slap in the head if I don’t make my bed. That’s what I love about her.
His surname is pronounced kee-own.
He has a son with his partner Alyson Kierans.
