Liam Neeson is one of the slickest men on the big screen. What’s not to love? He beats up the bad guys, oh, and he’s a big hurling fan!
Ruairí Óg Cushendall of Antrim are facing Na Piarsaigh of Limerick tomorrow at Croke Park in the club All-Ireland final, and Neeson has nailed his colours to the mast.
Although the 63 year-old used to hurl with St Patrick’s in Ballymena, he has thrown his support behind Cushendall.
He hurled for St Patrick’s in Ballymena but now he’s a Ruairí Óg supporter!

Neeson is a great man to be getting behind the hurling club, but somebody badly needs to tell him to keep his right hand on the top of the hurl!
Cushendall and Na Piarsaigh face off at headquarters in one of the most anticipated finals in recent years, as both clubs are contesting their first decider.
Having overcome Sarsfields of Galway and Oulart The-Ballagh respectively, the Antrim and Limerick sides face off to be crowned the best club hurling team in the country.
With high profile supporters like Neeson, Ruairí Óg must be going into the game with confidence.
