For the first time in almost 100 years, the pubs will be open on Good Friday so you may not be planning a quiet one tomorrow. But if a night in front of the box is just what the doctor ordered, you'll be wanting to know who is on The Late Late Show.
It's not a bad lineup either.
First up, musician and charity campaigner Bob Geldof will be on the show chatting about everything from his championing of WB Yeats to the recent controversy around his decision to hand back the freedom of Dublin in protest. He’ll be telling us why he thinks the marriage referendum was a defining moment for his generation; and how his opinion of his home country has changed utterly.
Also on the show, Bryan Dobson will be talking about his 21 years anchoring the main evening news on RTÉ, paying witness to some of the biggest events to happen on this island and beyond. He will discuss some of the most memorable and significant moments of his time helming Six One and he’ll be chatting about why he made the switch to radio and how he’s finding the early starts in his new role on Morning Ireland.
New York based Corkonian comedian Maeve Higgins also joins Ryan to chat about making a name for herself on the US scene and keeping her toe dipped in the comedy waters on this side of the Atlantic. She’ll also be filling viewers in on some exciting new projects including a brand new comedy set to start shooting in Cork next spring.
Musician, singer-songwriter, and actor, there are many strings to Finbar Furey’s bow. As he launches his new album, having signed a new record deal at the tender age of 71, he joins Ryan to chat about why his love for music is as strong as ever and he will be performing.
As they travel around the country looking at some of the most beautiful houses in Ireland, Hugh Wallace, Deirdre Whelan and new judge Patrick Bradley, will be discussing what it takes to be declared Home of the Year.
Finally, it wouldn't be a Late Late Show without some animals brought into the mix as we will get to meet some of the animals rescued and restored to full health by The Donkey Sanctuary.
Catch The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Good Friday, March 30th at 9.35pm.
