Other celebrity speakers involved this year include actors Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson and Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, activist Ingileif Friðriksdóttir and singer Elín Hall.

The literary festival takes place from November 15th to 18th and is set to celebrate “darkness in all its forms”.

Ryan Tubridy has taken on his first presenting gig since splitting with RTÉ.

According to The Sunday Independent, the Dubliner presented a discussion on pensions and financial advice, which was filmed on Thursday afternoon. The panel was held as a part of the upcoming Pensions Awareness Week.

Fellow presenter Gráinne Seoige and entrepreneur Liz Dwyer also took part in the event. The panel discussion is due to be broadcast on the 28th of September. The former Late Late Show host is said to have presented a panel titled, Rediscovering yourself in your second life.

With the blurb reading: “When you walk away from the job, which has filled that work slot during your adult life, you are likely to experience a sense of loss, of dislocation.”
