Tonight’s Late Late features Barry Keoghan, a GOT star and some 1990s music nostalgia

James Fenton

The Late Late tonight will feature a nice blend of Irish acting talent, Eurovision stars of past and present, as well as some 1990s nostalgia.

Leading the way will be Dublin’s future Oscar winner (we can dream) Barry Keoghan who will be joined by Mullingar actress Niamh Algar as the pair discuss their upcoming movie Calm With Horses. Barry is always a great draw for the Late Late and many will remember when he spoke with great pride of his grandmother and his late mother in 2018. If you don’t, you can catch up by viewing the below clip…

Also appearing tonight will be Keoghan’s fellow Dubliner and Game Of Thrones star Liam Cunningham. The 58-year-old will be discussing his career to date and what life has been like since he finished working on one of the biggest TV shows of all time.

Yesterday, it was announced that Balbriggan singer Lesley Roy would be representing Ireland at the Eurovision. She will be performing her song Story Of My Life which the nation hope will lead her to glory this coming May in Rotterdam. Irish Eurovision royalty Charlie McGettigan will also be on to discuss winning the competition in 1994 alongside Paul Harrington with Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids.

On the subject of Rotterdam, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott of The Beautiful South will be performing some of their biggest hits which should include the catchy 1996 single named after the Netherlands’ second-largest city.

On a more serious note, viewers will be kept up to date with the latest news on the coronavirus outbreak while former Dublin footballer Dr. Noel McCaffrey (father of current Dub Jack) will ‘discuss his ongoing mission to restore health for seriously ill patients through exercise.’

You can catch all of this when The Late Late Show airs tonight on RTE One at 9.35pm.
