Here's the line-up for this week's Late Late Show

The search for Ryan Tubridy's successor continues to rumble on as RTÉ have announced the line up for this week's Late Late Show.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, Ryan will be joined live in the Late Late Show studio by former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, who will share his memories of the historic day.


David Trimble's son, Nicholas, who was a child when the agreement was signed, will speak about the risk his father took and what his legacy means today. Derry-born journalist Aoife Moore will discuss what the agreement meant and all three will look ahead to the challenges that are in store for the future.

Ahead of US President Joe Biden’s visit to Ireland next week, US Ambassador to Ireland Claire Cronin will join Ryan in the studio.

Belfast-native Brian Kennedy will sing 'Life, Love and Happiness', a song he wrote about the peace process with two cross-community choirs, Cairde Community Choir and Belfast Youth Choir.

Jockey Bryan Cooper will also join the show to discuss his shock retirement, aged 30, last month. Some GAA All-Stars will also be on the show to discuss triumphs, trophies, and tips for the tournament ahead.


Alanna Quinn Idris was blinded in one eye after being attacked on December 30th, 2021. Alanna will join Ryan to discuss how her life changed that day, what it was like giving her victim impact statement in court and her long road to recovery.

There is also music from English singer/songwriter Badly Drawn Boy who will sing 'Something to Talk About.'

The Late Late Show will return to screens on RTÉ One on Friday, 7 April at 9:35 pm.
