This week’s Late Late show is a mix of Hollywood, Politics and TV favourites.
Gabriel Byrne will be chatting to Ryan Tubridy live in Studio about his hugely successful career so far.
He’ll be telling viewers about his new film Hereditary, already being described as one of the scariest horror movies in years, and picking up a lifetime achievement award at the IFTAs.
Also in the Hollywood corner, is Golden Globe-nominated actress, Caitriona Balfe. She joins Ryan to talk about how she went from growing up in Monaghan to finding international fame with hit series Outlander.
In politics, newly elected Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald will be on to discuss taking over the leadership of the party after 35 years with Gerry Adams at the helm.
As talks to break the stalemate in Stormont flounder, she will be sharing her vision for the Sinn Féin party, north and south of the border. She’ll also be telling viewers the highs and lows of her rise up through the party ranks having first come to prominence in the early 2000s.
Ireland’s favourite architect Dermot Bannon will be on the couch to chat about the new series of Room to Improve, and what happened when he took on the challenge of renovating the Donegal home of Daniel and Majella O’Donnell. He’ll also be joined by a past client who had the entire nation talking.
And we’ll be celebrating the best of press photography in Ireland showcasing some of the winning shots from the Press Photographers Association of Ireland Awards.
There will be music from Feeder.
