The nights are getting colder and longer, so we couldn’t think of anything better than spending Friday curled up in front of the fire.

Thankfully, The Late Late Show is on hand to entertain us and there’s no shortage of Irish talent on it this week.

Ryan already revealed that Martin O’Neill would be joining him and he will sit down to his career on the pitch and on the sidelines, including the managerial career that saw him mastermind some of Ireland’s biggest wins in the past decade.

Martin will discuss all, including how he feels about his time as Ireland manager now that the dust has settled.

Keeping with sports, Rhys McClenaghan will chat about being the first Irish person ever to win Gold at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

He’ll share why Katie Taylor is his inspiration and what it felt like to achieve a dream he has had since jumping off his first trampoline at age six.

Moving onto our bustling music scene, Ryan will be joined by the one and only Mary Black ahead of her Lifetime Achievement Award at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards later this month.

She will talk about her incredible life and career in music and will treat us to some of her favourite songs to perform.

Rising star, Dublin musician Ailbhe Reddy will also join Ryan as she is set to embark on a string of UK and European tour dates. Ailbhe will perform her newest song Shitshow.

And, of course, they couldn’t miss out on our online superstars. Rory O’Connor, also known as Rory’s Stories, will chat all things comedy and the importance of perseverance. He will chat about his journey from struggling in school to writing four books and sharing stories with over 1 million online followers.

Offaly native and YouTube superstar with a massive 28 million followers Jacksepticeye, otherwise known as Sean McLoughlin, will join us on Friday night to mark 10 years in the business.

Finally, Ryan will speak with 12-year-old Cara Darmody from Tipperary who sat her Junior Cert Maths exam last June, to raise funds for therapy services for children with special needs.

As she awaits her results, she will talk about what inspired her to take on this challenge and her plan to tackle the Leaving Cert next year!
