It's the last Late Late Show of January this Friday night- which means either you'll be at home watching and counting your last morsels until payday, or you just got paid and you don't give a toss who is on because you is RICH.
For the former, joining Ryan will be Striking Out stars Amy Huberman and Maria Doyle Kennedy to chat about the second season of the legal drama, currently showing on RTÉ. Amy will be talking about taking Striking Out to an American audience while Orphan Black star Maria will chat about her celebrated career in music and joining Caitriona Balfe on the hit series Outlander.
Former Ireland scrum-half Peter Stringer will be in studio to talk about twenty years of top-flight rugby including achieving Grand Slam glory with Ireland and taking home the Heineken Cup with Munster and we’ll find out what’s next for the Cork man now that he has returned from his time in the UK.
Fresh from the World Economic Forum at Davos where he hosted an event featuring the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am and the Estonian prime minister, Web Summit founder Paddy Cosgrave will be on The Late Late discussing everything from the controversial decision to pull the Web Summit from Ireland to his solutions to our property crisis.
In the week when a shocking court case gave every parent in Ireland pause for thought about their children and social media, The Late Late Show will feature a panel discussion on smartphone safety. Child psychologist David Coleman, CyberSafeIreland’s Cliona Curley, and Irish Daily Mail editor Sebastian Hamilton will discuss the dangers facing children using social media apps, what parents need to do to protect their kids and how society should be tackling the issue.
