Expect the ultimate St. Patrick's Day parade on this week's Ray D'Arcy Show

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

It's going to be a St. Patrick's Day extravaganza on this week's Ray D'Arcy Show as the host plans to throw a parade of sorts on the air.

In a first for Irish television, Ray will be bringing in participants from local parades all over the country to create "a very special super parade," featuring participants from Newbridge, Cork, Kilkenny, Clane, Limerick, Ashbourne, Carlow and Portarlington.

Then one of RTÉ's most beloved sports presenters, Michael Lyster will be coming on to talk about his planned retirement next year after a staggering 35 seasons working on The Sunday Game. Looking at his health scare a few years ago and how that still plays on his mind, he also sheds a bit of light on why Dancing With The Stars isn't something he's considering as a post-retirement plan.

Afterwards, Ireland’s renowned goalkeeper Darren Randolph will be talking about his nomination for the FAI’s Player of the Year award, and he’ll also be discussing what it’s like to work with Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane.

And because nothing says St. Patrick's Day quite like ripping your shirt off at the slightest of provocations, TV host Jerry Springer will be coming in to chat about the enduring success of The Jerry Springer Show and of course, Donald Trump.

The Ray D’Arcy Show airs this Saturday at 9:45pm on RTÉ One.
