It's the second Late Late Show of the New Year on Friday and by all accounts it will be a very Irish affair.

First up, the lady of the moment will be on for a chat with Ryan, as Irish footballer Stephanie Roche joins the host following on from her nominee for the Puskas best goal of the year award. Stephanie may have lost out to James Rodriguez at Monday night's Fifa Ballon d'Or ceremony in Zurich, but her nomination alone was monumental.

Joining herself will be another Irish sports star as Dublin footballer Bernard Brogan joins Ryan for a chat. Bernard has been in the news a lot recently discussing how GAA players career choices are affected by their commitment to the sport.

Kerry politician Michael Healy Rae will also be on to talk about life in the political dynasty that is the Healy Rae's.

TV presenter Claire Byrne will be talking to Ryan about her new current affairs show starting on RTE on Monday called Claire Byrne Live.

While Bay City Rollers Les McKeown will be the non-Irish participant chatting to Ryan about being the voice of the seventies super group and what he is up to do these days and the like.

So there you have it! Sports, current affairs and an aging rock star will be your Friday night's entertainment, sure what more could you ask for. Ahem...
