Ireland's Paralympic heroes, Samantha Mumba, Joanne O’Riordan, Joanne McNally, Paul O’Connell, Hermitage Green, and Orla Gartland are among the guests for this week’s The Late Late Show.
Ireland's Paralympians Jason Smyth, Ellen Keane, Nicole Turner, Gary O'Reilly, Katie-George Dunlevy, and Eve McCrystal will be guests, along with sports journalist Joanne O'Riordan, to talk about their success, their homecoming, and their medals.
Singer Samantha Mumba will talk about raising her daughter in LA, why activism is important to her, the reality of life in the music business, living life on her own terms and her new role as a judge in Last Singer Standing, which is due to hit screens later this autumn.
Comedian Joanne McNally will also reveal why her therapist ghosted her, as well as talking about being kicked off a celebrity dating website, life in London and why she has the spare key to Vogue’s house.
Ireland Rugby Coach and Munster player Paul O'Connell will join host Ryan Tubridy to discuss how he finds life on the side-line with Ireland and the new challenges he is facing now that he is back with the national team.
He’ll also discuss his ongoing work in schools throughout Ireland with Barnardos and why the lessons he learned through sport when he was growing up helped shape him as a father, player, and coach.
We’ll also hear the most extraordinary story of the long-lost siblings who had been left as babies on either side of the Irish border only to find each other over 50 years later through the help of DNA testing and the ITV programme Long Lost Family.
Plus, Orla Gartland performs You're Not Special Babe from her acclaimed album Woman on The Internet and Hermitage Green will premiere their new single Got to Give ahead of their forthcoming Irish concerts.
The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Friday, September 10 at 9.35 pm.
