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

Normal service resumes following the St Patrick's Day celebrations.

The Late Late Show returns to its usual Friday night time slot this week as host Ryan Tubridy once more welcomes a fresh batch of guests to the dance.


Can anyone compete with the singing prowess of Kellie Harrington and John C. Reilly? Time will indeed tell.

Mick McCarthy usually raises an eyebrow or two, and he'll be on hand to do so again in an appearance in aid of Daffodil Day.

The former Republic of Ireland boss – and 'Captain Fantastic' in his playing days – will speak about both of his parents and the long-lasting impact they had on his life.

Presumably, he'll also give his thoughts on the current Ireland set-up. You could probably throw a fiver on that coming up in the conversation.


Raising funds for the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day will be Ireland and Leinster pro Andrew Porter, who sadly lost his mother Wendy to cancer when he was just 12 years old.

A different tone will be struck when ace impressionist and former JOE man Conor Moore pitches up with his unique take on an array of famous Irish characters.

Speaking of Irish characters, magician and mentalist Keith Barry will "dazzle and amaze" the audience with his illusion and hypnotic-based bag of tricks.

There isn't an actual bag. It's all in the mind, you see.


Elsewhere, hairstylist to the stars Andrew Fitzsimons will discuss how he rose from being a lonely teenager to becoming the go-to scissor-man for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, the Kardashians, Bella Hadid and Megan Fox.

Tubridy will also speak with Amy Dunne, who became embroiled in one of the most contentious debates in Irish society at the age of 17 when she found herself fighting in court for the right to travel to the UK for a termination after her baby was diagnosed with a fatal foetal abnormality.

Dunne will provide insight into how her very private story became a public incident, and the impact thereof.

Music on the night comes via Ireland's newest folk band Ceol, who were formed following a nationwide search of over 1,000 musicians.


The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One on Friday (25 march) at 9.35pm.
