HOLLYWOOD HARD MAN Liam Neeson has given his support to Antrim’s Ruairí Óg, Cushendall ahead of their St Patrick’s Day All-Ireland club final outing against Na Piarsaigh of Limerick.

The Taken, Schindler’s List and Gangs of New York star is from Ballymena but has many links to the Cushendall area.

And in this video of encouragement, posted on the Ruairí Óg CLG Facebook page, Neeson urges the club to “bring the trophy home boys” before letting out a cry of “Up the Ruairís” and delivering a solid-looking pass out of camera.
