In these uncertain times, it seems the familiar is what we crave. With that in mind, it’s no wonder there was such a positive response to The Late Late Show’s return last night.
Friday nights are still looking pretty different for most of us right now, as there’s no popping down to the local for a pint at the end of the week. So, there is something nice about The Late Late Show being back on our screens, a little bit of normality has returned!
Last night saw legendary GAA commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh joins Ryan in the historic setting of Croke Park to talk about the lost summer of the All-Ireland Championships, the importance of the stadium to Irish culture as it marks the centenary of Bloody Sunday, and why positivity is the medicine that has kept him going for 90 years.
Plus, some of the members of Irish Women in Harmony, who topped the official homegrown charts with their cover of The Cranberries’ Dreams in aid of Safe Ireland this summer, performed live.
Twitter running commentary on the #latelate with a few bottles provides a semblance of normality. #latelateshow

Maybe I am getting old but there is something reassuring about @RTELateLateShow being back! It’s one of the few constants we have at a time when so much has been postponed, called off or curtailed! And Ryan Tubridy has this incredible ability to lift spirits. Needed at this time!

We think Simon Harris summed up our feelings about the show’s return best! Now just to find out who’ll be on next week…
