‘As Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, I will be raising this at full council on Tuesday where we will be holding a minute’s silence. Rest in Peace, Kitty.’

As well as the Taken actor, cook Kitty also had children Elizabeth, Bernadette, and Rosaleen with husband Bernard ‘Barney’ Neeson.

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Liam for comment. 

The sad news comes just one day before movie star Liam turns 68.








Kitty’s passing comes 11 years after Liam’s wife Natasha Richardson tragically died in a skiing accident in Canada.

Relatives of the 45-year-old actress made the heartbreaking decision to switch off her life support machine in 2009 after saying their final goodbyes after doctors told them there was no hope. 

An autopsy concluded that Natasha, who took a tumble during a skiing lesson, had died from a build-up of blood in the brain known as an epidural haematoma.
