Rubberbandits star Blindboy Boatclub earned huge praise from viewers last night, following his appearance on the Late Late Show.

The Limerick native was on the show to discuss the 1916 Rising and commemorations which are due to take place this year, and despite being joined by the likes of Ivan Yates, Robert Ballagh and Martina Devlin, it was the Blindboy who stole the show.

The Rubberbandits made a documentary in honor of the Easter Rising which aired on RTE over the Chrismtas period, and spoke openly on the Late Late Show about the topic – gaining huge appreciation from viewers.

One user took to Twitter and said, “Fair play to Blindboy Boatclub. Made more sense than the rest of the panel. Someone who actually understands the people!”

“Blindboy Boatclub for Taoiseach. Accurate description of Ireland for young people,” said a Twitter user.
