Na Piarsaigh better watch out. Ruairi Óg, Cushendall have called in a heavy hitter ahead of Thursday's All-Ireland Club Hurling Final in Croke Park.
Actor Liam Neeson was a hurler in his younger days, but the Ballymena native grabbed a hurl once more to wish the Antrim champions the best in their first All-Ireland final. Cushendall have won the Ulster Championship on ten occasions since 1981, but have never reached a Croke Park final.
"Bring the trophy home boys. Up the Ruairis!", Neeson tells the camera ahead of the big game.
Ruairi Óg, Cushendall's game with Na Piarsaigh gets underway at 2pm on Thursday afternoon. Whoever wins will add their club's name to the Tommy Moore Cup for the first time in their history.
