Here's the line-up for this week's episode of The Late Late Show
No need to go out on Friday night, after all...
The hottest televisual Friday night appointment in town is nearly upon us for another week and you may well be pacing your room wondering; 'who is on The Late Late Show this week?' – worry not, we have the line-up.
In conversation with Ryan Tubridy shall be...
Ciarán Hinds and Clare Dunne, who star in RTÉ's new Love/Hate-esque drama Kin. One episode of the show has already aired. Was it enough to convince you of those Sopranos comparisons doing the rounds?
If not, perhaps both Hinds and Dunne can. They'll be opening up on the new show, the joy of filming in Dublin again and why Clare, in particular, could never be a real-life crime boss. Because it's illegal, presumably?
JOE had the pleasure of chatting with Clare recently, as it happens. Check that interview out here.
Also on the Late Late Show comfy chair(s) this week – Irish TikTok sensation Miriam Mullins will detail a life lived online while also giving Ryan some tops on how to hit big on the social media platform.
Olympic taekwondo star Jack Woolley will discuss his rise to the spotlight and his road to recovery following a vicious assault in Dublin's city centre last month. Woolley will also chat about his hopes to inspire the next generation of Irish athletes and why he can't wait to get back into the ring.
Also on the Late Late this week, Tuam historian Catherine Corless will appear alongside her husband Aidan for a "special in-depth interview like no other" as Corless' new book Belonging: A Memoir is highlighted. Corless will open up on her quest for the truth about the Tuam Mother and Baby Home in Galway and her early childhood.
Elsewhere, an eye-catching photo-book by the name of Old Ireland in Colour 2 will be given its chance to dazzle viewers, while one of its authors, Dr Sarah-Anne Buckley, will provide the backstory on some of the images that have been brought to life through cutting-edge technology, historical research and expert colourisation.
As for the music, acclaimed singer-songwriter Wallis Bird will perform 'To My Bones', while Garth Brooks fever will race through the studio as The Three Amigos pay homage to the returning country and western superstar.
The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One on Friday night (17 September) at 9.35pm.
