Earlier today Michael D Higgins presented Liam Neeson with the Presidential Distinguished Service Award for the Irish Abroad.

The actor received the honour for his work with UNICEF, for promoting Irish tourism and raising the country's profile overseas.

Michael D made a lovely speech praising the "splendid Irish man", whom he said was a a "worthy recipient".
