    I went with the family to see Batman Begins this afternoon. Not only was it by far the best Dark Knight screen version yet, but I was amazed at how much of the cast was British/Irish (including one from my native Belfast and another from Bangor, Co. Down about 20 miles from here), especially among the leading characters.

    It's a fantastic advert for British/Irish talent.

    Who else in the cast was Irish, apart from Liam Neeson?

    Cillian Murphy, Larry Holden, Gerard Murphy, Ronan Leahy, David Murray, Darragh Kelly, Joe Hanley, Karl Sheils, Risteard Cooper and Kieran Hurley are the ones I know for definite.

    The Gooner and Damage Inc

    It was pretty distressing to see the footage of the victims of Thursdays explosions being carried out of tube stations etc. But it really hit home when I saw a fellow Gooner being stretchered out. Here was a guy I could be standing at the bar of the Auld Triangle with, or sat beside in the North Bank Stand, or buying souvenirs in the World Of Sport beside Finsbury Park tube.

    Horrifying.

    Cillian Murphy is Irish? This I did not know.

    Just like New York has a huge population of Irish descent, it looks like the same applies to Gotham City! :)

    I feel Tom Wilkinson was the only mis-cast role in the film. Apart from that it was superb!
