This Friday’s Late Late show will be the last in the series.
On the couch will be guests from all areas such as entertainment, news and personal life stories.
Here’s the full lineup:
As the country goes to the polls to vote on the referendum on the 8th amendment, The Late Late Show will reveal the results of a nationwide Exit Poll live on air on Friday night.
The result of the poll of 3,000 voters, carried out for RTÉ and a number of Irish Universities by independent research company Behaviour & Attitudes, will not be revealed until after polling stations have closed. Prime Time’s David McCullagh will reveal the result of the overall Yes/No Exit Poll question, as soon as it becomes available.
Tomorrow night’s show will also feature one of the fastest thinking stand-ups on the circuit, Jason Byrne as he reveals the “three brains” that make his comedy tick. And celebrating 20 years together, the Après Match team Barry Murphy, Risteárd Cooper and Gary Cooke will be in studio.
Emmet Kirwan became one of the voices of his generation last year when his powerful take on the state of the nation Heartbreak went viral. He went on to make waves as part of theatrical sensation RIOT and now he has co-written and starred in a brand new movie Dublin Oldschool which promises to be the capital city’s Trainspotting. He’ll be telling Late Late host Ryan Tubridy what it was like to star in a movie shot in the city he loves.
Bestselling author Lorna Byrne is known around the world for her books on angels. She joins Ryan on Friday night to discuss her new book Prayers from the Heart and give her advice on how best to use prayer to call on God for help.
When eight-year-old artist Roisin Tansey appeared on The Late Late Show last year, she captured the hearts of the nation. She’s back with a very special project to be revealed live on air.
In a week when the country is reeling from the murders of Ana Kriegel and Jastine Valdez, viewers will hear from Ruth Maxwell, who was subject to a random attack in Clondalkin in 2016. She was able to fight off her attacker, but not before suffering a sign life-long injury to her hand. DNA from her attacker was later linked to two earlier sexual assaults on women in the same area and he was recently sentenced to more than 18 years in prison for false imprisonment, sexual assault and assault. Ruth will talk about the ongoing impact of the attack on her and why she waived her anonymity to help other victims.
Plus music from The High Kings and An Emotional Fish.
The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One Friday, May 25th at 9.35pm.
