Hollywood film star Liam Neeson has once again given his backing to the integrated education campaign in Northern Ireland.

The Ballymena Taken actor was at the House of Lords in London to meet with integrated education supporters.

Liam joined Baroness May Blood MBE, chair of the Integrated Education Fund (IEF) and John Fitzpatrick, chief executive of Fitzpatrick Hotels and Chair of the American Ireland Fund (AIF) and pledged his continuing support for the campaign.

John Fitzpatrick and Baroness Blood travelled on to Northern Ireland where they viewed a preschool project opened with the support of the AIF, the IEF and the Eithne and Paddy Fitzpatrick Memorial Fund.

Recently it was reported the the Schindler's List Oscar nominee lost a lot of weight for a role in Silence, Martin Scorsese's live-action adaptation of the novel by Shusaku Endo.

The movie about Catholic persecution in 17th century Japan finished filming recently in Taiwan, where Neeson had been playing Fr Cristovao Ferreira, a Portuguese Jesuit priest.
