Christy Moore
Tonight Christy Moore tells his life story through his songs. He talks about his early influences from the Clancy Brothers to civil rights fundraiser Dominic Behan. He speaks about how much his late mother meant to him an and how she inspired him to write Yellow Furze Woman which he also performs.

Being a great social commentator, Chisty talks about the time he was moved to honour Veronica Guerin in song.

On a more humorous note he also talks about Garda Brenda Hyland who won the Rose of Tralee and how the thoughts of her took 'his imagination took him to places that he shouldn't go' and inspired the hilarious song Me and the Rose.

He goes on to sing his favourite song of all time, Lord Baker, which he performs acapella. The old favourites Ordinary Man, Nancy Spain and Lisdoonvarna are also included in his set as well as the stories behind them. The programme finishes with Gay and Christy reminiscing about the amount of times he appeared on the Late Late (an estimated 22 times in total) and the audience join in with the Cliffs of Dooneen.
