World-renowned actor and Ballymena native Liam Neeson has endorsed Unite’s Rally for a Future on Saturday, February 6, when the Ballymena community will band together demanding investment and jobs. Watch the video below:



“We are honoured that Liam has taken the time out from his busy schedule to produce a video message calling for attendance for Saturday’s Rally in Ballymena,” said Unite Ireland secretary Jimmy Kelly.


“Saturday is a chance for everyone to lend their voice to the call for action to secure investment and much needed jobs for the town,” he added.


“This campaign – an initiative taken and led by workers facing redundancy in Michelin and JTI-Gallaher – has won the backing of stars like Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt as well as securing the support of the Ballymena Chamber of Commerce, sports clubs and training agencies based in the town,” Kelly went on to say.


“Ahead of Saturday’s rally, there is a real surge in support for the demand for our Ministers and those charged with responsibility for economic development to act and secure the jobs that are desperately needed.”
