The show has revealed that tonight's episode will be asking: Is it time for a United Ireland?

Joining Byrne to discuss this will be Taoiseach Micheál Martin, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald.

Other guests on the show, meanwhile, will include Northern Irish former sportsmen Andrew Trimble and Joe Brolly and politicians Ian Paisley Jr and Naomi Long.

Support for the concept of a united Ireland is said to have grown following Northern Ireland leaving the European Union as part of Brexit.
