Mel Gibson has constantly shared his love for Ireland. In fact, he even has Irish citizenship!

Now the Australian actor is set to send a personal video message to one particular Irish town ahead of the 25th-anniversary celebrations for Braveheart.

He will send his love to Trim in Co Meath ahead of the town’s celebrations for the Oscar-winning film this week.

Many of the movie’s most famous scenes were shot around Trim Castle in Co Meath.

Trim is set to have a festival later this year to mark the anniversary with celebrations kicking off on August 13th and, according to The Mirror, Mel just had to be involved.

The actor apparently was delighted when he saw the murals decorated around the town in honour of the legendary film and will send a message to the inhabitants of the area.

Mel, along with, Brendan Gleeson and David O’Hara, have also signed photographs which will be auctioned off in aid of a local fundraising effort to send humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

The event was due to be held in 2020 but COVID-19 cancelled those original plans. Now it is back and bigger than ever.

There will be a handful of stars from the film in attendance including Angus Macfadyen (Robert the Bruce), James Robinson (young William Wallace), Mhairi Calvey (Murran) and Peter Hanley (Prince Edward).

The Scottish William Wallace Society will also be flying in for the event, say organisers.

The 25-year-anniversary will include a screening of the movie Braveheart in front of Trim Castle where members of the original cast members will be present. The organisers have also hinted at “surprises” that will be announced closer to the time.
