But now the full line-up has been announced we are even more delighted.
Ryan will chat to singer-songwriter Paul Brady about pursuing his Crazy Dreams over his long and eclectic career.
He’ll discuss the inspiration behind The Island, as well as finding success again after winding up penniless in America, and performing his own song alongside Tina Turner in front of an Irish audience.
He’ll also reveal the moment that he taught Bob Dylan how to play The Lakes of Ponchartrain. There will also have a special musical performance from Paul and will sing The Island.
Ireland’s Ciara Mageean picked up a silver medal at this summer’s European Athletics Championships which was followed by a record-breaking 1500 metres of three minutes 56.63 seconds run, that saw her shatter Sonia O’Sullivan’s 27-year national record by two seconds.
It’s been an incredible summer for the athlete and she will be on hand to discuss her incredible success with Ryan.
