Last night’s Late Late Show welcomed the heroic young nurse who saved the life of a Dublin Bus driver who suffered a heart attack while on duty last week.
The dramatic incident occurred in Dublin’s City Centre, and nurse Aoife McGivney’s quick thinking and CPR meant the driver made a full recovery and is doing well.
Host Ryan Tubridy spoke to Aoife about the incident, and how she managed to act quickly and save a life!

Two observations on tonight’s #LateLateShow 1. Aoife McGivney is a bit of a legend & a reminder of how great our nurses are…
2. I’m not a close friend of his, but Mick McCarthy is one of the most decent men I’ve come across in Irish sport #JustSaying
