Friday’s Late Late Show line up is worth staying in for


by Jennifer McShane
10th Jan 2019

Given that we’re all just back to work and trying to save (until payday, at least) staying in on a chilly Friday night doesn’t seem like a bad idea. The Late Late Show is back following the Christmas break and for their first show of the new year, they have a line-up showcasing the very best of Irish talent.

Fresh from presenting an award at the Golden Globes (and wearing that incredible gown), Saoirse Ronan leads a star-studded line up on tomorrow night’s show.  The 24-year-old Carlow star (yes, she’s just 24) has an illustrious career, with three Oscar nominations already under her belt. She joins host Ryan Tubridy to look back at her journey from The Clinic and Proof to discuss her new movie, Mary Queen of Scots, a week away from release in Irish cinemas.

Then, four of Ireland’s most successful young people will be talking about life in your twenties in Ireland today. Michael Conlan, the former Irish Olympic boxer who recently won the first title of his professional career; Barry Keoghan, the Irish actor and star of Dunkirk and The Killing of A Sacred Deer who is one of two Irish people to make the BAFTA Rising Star shortlist; Ellen Coyne, a Senior Journalist at The Times Ireland and Rosie Connolly, one of Ireland’s leading fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers.

We’ve more talk of movies, as actor John C. Reilly and comedian Steve Coogan will be chatting to Ryan about their new biopic, Stan and Ollie, which follows the fame and friendship of comedy icons Laurel and Hardy, as they embark upon their final tour of Ireland and the UK.

Love is in the air as First Dates Ireland swings open its restaurant doors once again to bring singletons from all over the country together in the hope of finding love. There will be a catch up with some of the new contestants, as well as checking in on previous First Dates couples; including Dubliner Shannon and Monaghan farmer Ciara who bonded over their love of club classic Maniac 2000.

Finally, spoken word artist Natalya O’Flaherty will feature, and there’ll be music from The Academic, and The 2 Johnnies, Ireland’s favourite comedy podcast duo.

The Late Late Show airs Friday at 9.35pm on RTÉ One
