Ryan Tubridy has revealed some of the guests that will be joining him for the Late Late Show St Patrick's Night Special.

He has promised viewers "the cream of Irish traditional music", with Brendan Gleeson, Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains and members from The Corrs and Clannad joining in the fun on the night.

Members of Stockton's Wing, Edel Fox, Louise Mulcahy and Zoë Conway will also be among the guests.

Speaking on Friday night's Late Late, the host said: "Save the date, people. Wednesday, the 17th March. Wednesday. Not Friday, Wednesday.

"The Late Late Show will be here on RTÉ One. Amazing, so tune in. It's St Patrick's Night, of course, and we'll be bringing you the lockdown session to end all lockdown sessions. We need a party, so we're going to bring it to you.

"We've enlisted the help of the diaspora, of course - [a] fancy word, basically, for your cousins, your brothers, your grandchildren, your sisters, your best friend from college who married the guy from Canada [and also] those proud to call themselves Irish and who are scattered to the four corners of the globe.

"We'll be presenting our Late Late Show St Patrick's Day Award to an outstanding recipient, so that's going to be enormous. And [there's] so much more happening so do join us on Wednesday night for our St Patrick's Day Special."
