Actor Liam Neeson hosted a dinner for some of his celebrity friends in New York this week, to raise money to rebuild a theatre in Ireland.

Stars such as Meryl Streep, Aidan Quinn, Brian Kennedy, Ciaran Hinds and Conleth Hill attended the bash, which brought a touch of the Emerald Isle to the Big Apple.

The fundraising campaign must raise $1.3 million by June to rebuild the iconic Lyric Theatre in Belfast, originally established in 1951.

“[The dinner] was held in a very cool penthouse near Broadway in New York,” said Neeson. “As we were sitting down, you could see Manhattan glittering in the background. It was an out of the world experience… it was just a stunning event.”
