Tom - who has a suitcase full of knitwear he made himself, can do an aul jig and had his own Granny ‘Nanny Pat’ on as his special guest - is my favourite person in the history of Irish television #LateLateToyShow pic.twitter.com/Itgic73X08

By all reports Gay Byrne was a meticulous worker and perfectionist. Tonight was the very most perfect tribute to him. It was pitch perfect. It made me feel like the whole country just watched Its a wonderful life, together. Goodnight Bedford Falls.. thanks Tubs #LateLateToyShow

A show with children of all abilities, ethnicities & identities, boys who knit & girls who box, that addressed bullying & illness, how Nanas rock & how being yourself & the best thing in the end. A few hours showing us how diversity is something to treasure. ♥️#LateLateToyShow

Tonight the #LateLateToyShow addressed love, loss, sickness, health, struggle, compassion, happiness, fun, the importance of family, and our differences.
The country is a better place tonight.
Thanks Ryan #LateLateToyShow

Hands down this was the best moment of the #LateLateToyShow tonight if not the best ever. Sometimes siblings of sick kids are forgotten and yet they worry as much if not more than any adult. To surprise Sophie like that was so special and you could see how much it meant to her 👏 https://t.co/wsW07niAiF

This is by far the most powerfully the Late Late has engaged with Ireland's social issues in years.
And look at the positive response.
People want public service broadcasting to serve the public, not celebrity noise.
Sincere respect to all involved.
