This week’s Late Late Show line up has been revealed, and if you’re a fan of history, you’re in for a treat!

Tomorrow night will feature a lively panel discussion on the merits – or otherwise – of the upcoming 1916 commemorations and celebrations, featuring broadcaster Ivan Yates, artist Robert Ballagh, writer Martina Devlin and, with his own unique take on it, Blindboy Boatclub from The Rubberbandits.

Meanwhile, the new master of the Rotunda, Professor Fergal Malone will join Ryan to discuss the challenges facing the Irish health service and whether the system is failing women, from those whose cancers are missed as a result of treatment delays to the pregnant women who must travel abroad if they want to terminate unviable pregnancies.
