Well, this is a first!

US chat show host, Conan O’Brien is set to make his Irish TV drama debut on TG4’s Ros na Rún.

The show will air on Tuesday 30 April, however, that’s not all as it will also feature in Conan’s HBO travel series this week.

The comedian filmed his guest appearance on the long-running Irish language series during a visit to Ireland earlier this year.

High on Conan’s priority list for his trip to Ireland was to speak Irish and have a cameo role on the leading TG4 drama series, now in its 28th Season.

Teasing what viewers can expect, Ros na Rún said: “On Tuesday 30 April at 8:30pm, Ros na Rún’s village rogue and publican, Tadhg Ó Direáin, is faced with a feisty delivery man who’s having none of Tadhg’s arrogant nonsense.

“Standing his ground, comedian and HBO Max TV personality Conan O’Brien, the new Ros na Rún delivery man, is certainly no pushover for Tadhg as a war of words is declared between the two in Tigh Thaidhg.

“Loyal fans of Ireland’s only rural-based TV drama will have to watch and see if Vince gets his balloons for his party and if publican Tadhg throws the legendary TV personality Conan O’Brien out of his pub.”

Conan filmed his cameo on January 9 during a visit to the Ros na Rún set in An Spidéal in the Connemara Gaeltacht.

During this time, he met with the team and linguistics coach Kevin Hussey who coached and challenged him to learn his first lines as Gaeilge.

The comedian is now added to Ros na Rún’s celebrity cameo hall of fame which already includes actor Stephen Fry, Country music legends Daniel O’Donnell and Nathan Carter, Francis Brennan and Virgin Media’s Alan Hughes to name but a few.

You can catch Ros na Rún twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday at 8.30pm on TG4 with an omnibus on Sunday evening at 7.30pm.
