Editor's Viewpoint: Better times
Liam Neeson has faced dark and difficult days since the tragic death of his wife, Natasha Richardson, not long ago.
However, like a true professional, he battled on and now there is happier career news to sustain him. Together with James Nesbitt, he starred in the outstanding production Five Minutes of Heaven which, at the weekend, won an Irish Film and Television award for the best Single Drama/Drama Serial category. This was thoroughly deserved, as is the general acclaim for the film Taken in which Liam Neeson again displays his outstanding talent. He has always been a star, in every way, and the people from his native province will continue to wish him well.
