Liam Neeson is flying home for this year’s IFTA Awards

Liam Neeson is one of Ireland’s finest actors and with so much work in Hollywood these days the Ballymena native rarely gets a chance to get home, but he’s making a special  effort this weekend.

The 63 years old will be flying into Dublin to receive the Outstanding Contribution to Industry Award at the 2016 IFTAs, which will be presented by President Michael D. Higgins.

This year’s ceremony takes place on Saturday, April 9th at the Mansion House, Dublin. Deirdre O’Kane will be on MC duties for the night with a total of 29 categories to be contested.

The highlights on the night will be broadcast on TV3 on Sunday, April 10th at 9PM.
