Fresh from presenting an award at the Golden Globes, Saoirse Ronan leads a star-studded line up on tomorrow night’s Late Late Show.
The 24-year-old will join host Ryan Tubridy to look back at her journey from The Clinic to the dizzying heights of Hollywood stardom, and discuss her new movie, Mary Queen of Scots.
Actor John C. Reilly and comedian Steve Coogan will also be chatting to Ryan about their new biopic, Stan and Ollie, which follows the fame and friendship of comedy icons Laurel and Hardy, as they embark upon their final tour of Ireland and the UK.
Earlier this week, Padraig Harrington was unveiled as European Captain for the 2020 Ryder Cup having vice-captained the last three.
The three-time major winner will join Ryan to discuss his plans for continued European domination of the competition, and how recovery is coming along after breaking a bone in his wrist in December.
The Late Late Show will also be asking four of Ireland’s most successful young people about life in your twenties in Ireland today – including Michael Conlan, the former Irish Olympic boxer who recently won the first title of his professional career; Barry Keoghan, the Irish actor who is one of two Irish people to make the BAFTA Rising Star shortlist; Ellen Coyne, a Senior Journalist at The Times Ireland; and Rosie Connolly, one of Ireland’s leading fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers.
To mark the much-anticipated return of First Dates Ireland, Ryan will catch up with some of the new contestants, as well as checking in on previous First Dates couples; including Dubliner Shannon and Monaghan farmer Ciara, who bonded over their love of club classic Maniac 2000.
There will also be music from The Academic, and The 2 Johnnies, Ireland’s favourite comedy podcast duo.
The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One, Friday, January 11th at 9.35pm.
