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

The show will pay tribute to the victims of the Creeslough tragedy with a special music performance.

It's that wonderful time of the week where we reveal precisely what you and the entire nation will be lining up to watch on Friday night – it's the Late Late Show line-up!

Exciting times. And it's a strong bill this week, with a pretty fantastic Irish triumvirate of generational talent leading the charge.

Ahead of the release of the much-anticipated The Banshees of Inisherin later this month, stars Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan will unite offscreen to talk about the new film, island life, Oscar buzz and plenty more.

And if you missed Gleeson doing a terrific job on Saturday Night Live last week, do check this out:

What a treasure he is. Elsewhere on the Late Late on Friday evening, Brendan O'Carroll – fresh from dismissing "woke" critics of his work – will discuss his long and varied career while reflecting on his mother Maureen, who will go down in history as Ireland's first female Labour TD.

To sport next and Dr Siobhán Doyle, who will examine famous GAA objects – including the first-ever hurling ball and the plaque that drove Armagh to triumph in 2002 All-Ireland football final – and explain the huge cultural significance attached to them.

Speaking of GAA, Paul Galvin will be on board to wax lyrical about his other notable passion – fashion.

We're just a couple of months out from the inaugural Late Late Toy Show musical, so now is probably the right time to check in with three performers who have been selected for the project. Ryan Tubridy – who insists he will not play a part in said musical – will pose the relevant questions.

Finally, following a shattering week in Donegal and across Ireland in the wake of the Creeslough tragedy, Moya Brennan and Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh will deliver a special music tribute to the 10 people who sadly lost their lives last Friday.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One on Friday, 14 October at 9.35pm.
