The Late Late is back for its first show of 2017. Tonight Ryan will be chatting to the nation's sweetheart Amy Huberman and former Men Behaving Badly star Neil Morrissey about their new series Striking Out, which premiered on RTE1 last Sunday.
Also on the show, Ryan will meet some of the famous faces from the much-anticipated Dancing with the Stars, including Hughie Maughan, Teresa Mannion and Des Cahill, as well as their dancing partners.
RTE's US correspondent Caitriona Perry will be in to talk to Ryan about covering one of the most tumultuous and unprecedented elections in America’s history.
We’ll be getting the lowdown on the vulture funds quietly buying up the country and finding out how their actions are impacting ordinary people from The Great Irish Sell Off’s Ian Kehoe.
There will be a panel discussion about what the new year may bring with actor and raconteur Michael Harding, The Rubberbandits’ Blindboy Boatclub (who may as well be given his own dressing room on that show at this point) and Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope writer Stefanie Preissner.
Finally, singer Connor McKeon will pay tribute to the music icons we lost in 2016 with a very special performance and country music star Derek Ryan will be in studio with his latest hit.
