Miriam O'Callaghan returns with a packed line-up for the first show in her 'Saturday Night with Miriam' series this weekend.

Joining the presenter for a chat is Fine Gael’s newest TD George Lee, in his first major television interview since being elected.

Also set to drop in for a chat are authors Amanda Brunker, Claudia Carroll and Marisa Mackle, who will be talking about women's fiction.

Miriam will also be talking to two victims of institutional abuse, Tim O’Rourke, the original whistleblower over 20 years ago and Michael O’Brien, whose moving comments on 'Questions & Answers' generated huge public feedback.

Singer Marti Pellow will be also chatting to Miriam on the couch and performing with members of the RTÉ Orchestra on the show.

Other musical entertainment on the night comes from Duckworth Lewis Method, aka Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh from Pugwash, who will be performing a track from their new concept album inspired by all things cricket.
