Ray D'Arcy set to focus on the topic of consent on Saturday night's show

The topic choice follows the verdict announcement from the Belfast trial earlier in the week.

The Ray D'Arcy Show's guests for Saturday night have been announced, with the host set to focus on the subject of consent following the highly-publicised Belfast rape trial, of which the verdict was announced earlier this week.


D'Arcy will be joined in studio by rape survivor Niamh Ní Dhomhnaill, Chief Executive of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre Noeline Blackwell and psychotherapist Richie Sadlier.

The three guests and D'Arcy will be discussing the importance of consent, and how the result of the Belfast trial affected victims of sexual abuse.

As well as this, D'Arcy will also be chatting to one of the stars of hit-comedy series The Young Offenders, Shane Casey. Casey will be in studio to talk about his a cappella cover of The Frank and Walters' Afterall, which has given the classic song a new lease of life.

The Frank and Walters will also be performing the song live.


Musical theatre star Rebecca Storm will also be joining the veteran presenter in studio to discuss her iconic roles and the new production of Calendar Girls, which sees her team-up with Take That's Gary Barlow.

Artist Kevin Sharkey will also be in studio to discuss his ambition to be Ireland's first black President. Sharkey announced his intention on running earlier in the week, saying the office of president should do more for homelessness than it currently does, and he believes he's the right man for the job.
