Liam Neeson's school just shared an old photo of him on the hurling team

“But what I do have are a very particular set of skills…”

WE ALREADY KNEW that Liam Neeson was a man of many talents, and now we can add minor hurling to the impressive list of achievements.

His old secondary school St Patrick’s College in Ballymena shared one of the best TBTs of the year yesterday when they posted this classic shot to Facebook:

Wonderfully captioned “Hurling Back the Years”, a certain L Neeson can be spotted fourth from left in the back row:

You can imagine him as a fearsome centre back on the local team – trash talking the opposing forward line with gems like this:

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.

Once the photo started getting attention on Facebook, the school had to clarify in the comments that it was the REAL Liam Neeson. Kudos for digging it out of the vaults for our enjoyment.
