Liam Neeson and Stephen Rea are both Ambassadors for UNICEF Ireland and they thanked Neil Jordan for gifting the premiere to UNICEF. Speaking on behalf of Liam and UNICEF Ireland, Stephen said: “Both Liam and I have been to Africa and seen firsthand the devastation that HIV/AIDS is causing to children.
