Limerick city has been revealed as the venue for the next "on the road" Late Late Show.

The show, a collaboration with Fáilte Ireland, will be broadcast from University Concert Hall on Friday March 13, just a few days before St Patrick's Day.

This is the third time The Late Late Show has left the studio in Dublin to travel to another destination. In 2008, the show was broadcast from The Wexford Opera Festival and in 2018 the show came live from London.

Members of the public can apply online to get tickets to the event which will showcase the best and brightest of Irish talent and community spirit.

 "The point of our upcoming trip to Limerick is that we are celebrating the best of Irish," declared presenter Ryan Tubridy. "Whatever walk of life you are in, whatever professional field you happen to be in, wherever it happens to be, we will be looking at you and saying 'we think you are wonderful'. 

He continued: "In a world that tends to focus on the negative too much, we like to strive to buck that trend. Irish people love this island, The Late Late Show loves Ireland and we cannot wait to get this show on the road and head West."
