It's a very Late Late Show Late Late Show this week

Last Friday night's Late Late Show may have caused quite a stir between Sean Spicer and Liam Neeson, but it looks like it will be a much tamer event this week. Well, unless Christy Dignam says something controversial.

The Late Late Show will celebrate 30 years of Aslan’s iconic album Feel No Shame this Friday. The band will be in studio to perform some of that seminal album’s best-known songs while lead singer Christy Dignam and guitarist Billy McGuinness will be on the couch to chat about how Aslan made their big breakthrough and the highs and lows that followed.

Also on the show, three-time major winner Padraig Harrington will be in studio to chat about why he is enjoying golf more than ever having recaptured what it was that made him love the game in the first place.

Pieta House founder Joan Freeman will be on the show to talk about a new project she is setting up to help Irish diaspora in the US. She will be joined by her sister, who happens to be the one and only Theresa Lowe, former host of pre-Glenroe '90s game show Where in the World? (Would now be a good time to ask for a reboot of that?? No? Okay, we'll ask later.)


Finally, The Late Late Show will be remembering the hundreds of people still missing in Ireland with Prime Time’s Barry Cummins and hearing from the family members of Deirdre Jacob, Fiona Sinnott and Cathal O'Brien, who have not given up the search for their loved ones.

There will also be music from Mary Coughlan.

Catch The Late Late Show on RTÉ One on Friday at 9.35pm, but sure you didn't need us to tell you that.
