“Liam Neeson Showcases ‘Beautiful’ Donegal on Hit US TV Show!”

Hollywood star Liam Neeson highlighted the beauty of Donegal to a US TV audience of  hundreds of thousands at the weekend.

The Ballymena native was on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote his latest film, ‘In the Land of Saints and Sinners‘, which was shot in the south west of the county.

The weekly show on NBC attracts more than 800,000 viewers per week and has 4.6 million subscribers on YouTube.

Watch below as Neeson describes the remote Donegal location, where he spent seven weeks filming, as ‘very beautiful.’

The latest Neeson thriller went on general release in American cinemas last Friday. Since then, it has received rave reviews from numerous media outlets, including an impressive 82% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film also began streaming on Netflix in the UK and Ireland yesterday.

Shot in spring of 2022 south west Donegal, it got its world premiere last autumn at the Venice Film Festival.

The thriller, starring Oscar nominees Neeson and Kerry Condon, was filmed over a seven week period, mainly in Glen, but also in Kilcar, Killybegs and Ardara.

Set in a rural Irish village, the adventure film tells the story of a retired assassin, Finbar (Neeson), who is forced into a game of cat and mouse with three terrorists.

A damaged Finbar is forced to fight for redemption after a lifetime of sins. The question is, what price is he willing to pay, as he finds himself drawn into a lethal game of cat and mouse.

Neeson has starred in dozens of films, including Schindler’s List, Taken and Batman Begins. Condon was nominated for nearly every award possible for her supporting performance in The Banshees of Inisherin.

The starry ensemble of  In the Land of Saints and Sinners also includes Colm Meaney (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Oscar-nominee Ciaran Hinds (Belfast), Jack Gleeson (Game of Thrones), Desmond Eastwood (Normal People) and Sarah Greene (Bad Sisters).
