This Friday, as Ireland heads into week three of level five lockdown restrictions, The Late Late Show will be dedicated to promoting Irish businesses across various sectors who have had to close their doors and adapt accordingly to survive.

Throughout the show, Irish companies will be showcasing their wares and demonstrating their tenacity and resourcefulness in the face of some of the toughest times in the history of their businesses. The spirit of Irish entrepreneurship will be well and truly on display.

Beyond retail, The Late Late Show will also be highlighting the challenges in the entertainment and music industries.

Singer Niall Horan will speak to Ryan about how the music industry has been affected by Covid shutdowns and what measures are being taken to keep it afloat, while comedian and TV presenter Deirdre O'Kane, will discuss changes in the comedy scene, and new challenges she and other Irish entertainers are facing.
