LIAM Neeson gives ‘The Sash’ an airing in his latest production.

The Ballymena actor stars in the Coen Brothers’ film ‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ which tells six stories of outlaws and settlers in the American Wild West.

See a clip here:


It was first released at the Venice International Film Festival in the summer and has gone on to earn rave reviews and awards.

The movie features a number of Hollywood A-listers including James Franco, Tim Blake Nelson and Brendan Gleeson.

Neeson plays a callous theatre showman. For his production entitled ‘Meal Ticket’ he transports a limbless man around for a travelling one-man “freak show”.

In a clip his character can be seen lying drunk by a camp fire singing Weila Waile – a song made famous by The Dubliners – before breaking into The Sash.
