The line-up for this week’s The Late Late Show is here

The show features very varied guests this week.


Ruby, Katie and Ted Walsh join Joe Brolly and Eurovision’s Ryan O’Shaughnessy on Late Late Line-Up

Irish horse racing’s first family, a Eurovision hopeful and an outspoken GAA pundit lead the line-up for this week’s Late Late Show on RTÉ One.

Ruby, Katie and Ted Walsh give their first joint television interview since Ruby’s unfortunate fall at Cheltenham.

Ruby will tell viewers about his frustration at falling and breaking his leg so soon after getting back in the saddle and Ted will reveal how it felt, as a parent, to see it happen.

Katie spills what it was like to race to victory later that day, with her brother’s condition on her mind.

She will also reveal whether or not she fancies her chances of becoming the first woman to win the Grand National at Aintree.

Joe Brolly joins Ryan to chat about everything from the upcoming GAA Championship and working as an advocate for cystic fibrosis patients; to growing up in Northern Ireland during the height of Troubles and the impact that seeing his father interned had on him.

With Ireland’s hopes at Eurovision victory resting on his shoulders, Ryan O’Shaughnessy will be in studio to chat about heading to Lisbon for this year’s contest and the controversy around the Russian take on the video for his entry ‘Together.

He’ll be performing the song on television for the first time.

Rachel Moran was coerced into prostitution in her early teens and spent seven years in the Dublin sex trade.

She campaigned strongly for a new law, brought in last year, to criminalise the buying of sex.

On Friday night she will discuss why she believes a failure to fully enforce this new law is making the sex trade more dangerous.


Ryan will meet some of the people whose objects caught the eye of the curators on National Treasures, the new TV show and exhibition telling the story of Ireland over the last 100 years through the ordinary objects treasured by families up and down the country.

He will be hearing some of the stories behind these objects and what they reveal about the Irish.

Dermot Higgins will also be in studio as he celebrates becoming, at 55, the oldest person ever to travel around the world by bicycle.
