Hozier performs 'The Parting Glass' in honour of Covid-19 victims
A powerful performance on a unique Late Late.
Miriam O'Callaghan made history on Friday night as the first woman to ever host The Late Late Show from start to finish.
It proved to be a fateful night for the country even before she took to the stage, with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announcing new restrictive measures, effectively amounting to a two-week lockdown.
Varadkar began his address by expressing his condolences for those who have passed away as a result of the Covid-19 coronavirus thus far, confirming the death of a healthcare worker in the process.
Later, in the Late Late Show studio, Miriam O'Callaghan would welcome Hozier, present to issue a plea for people to support the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
Introducing his stirring performance of 'The Parting Glass', O'Callaghan noted:
"I'd like to dedicate it to all the people who've lost their lives to this virus but in particular the health worker who died today."
"Absolutely," Hozier nodded.
