There’s something for everyone on tonight’s Late Late

Including the return of the Late Late karaoke contest!
Late Late

Graham Norton looks promising, but we might just switch over for this.

Tonight’s Late Late has guests from all walks of Irish life, covering everything from the GAA to religion to the state of the nation.

There’s also a healthy dose of entertainment too and we’re guaranteed a laugh (and probably a good cringe) from the return of the Late Late karaoke contest.

Brendan O’Carroll

The star of Mrs Brown’s Boys will soon be heading back to the 3 Arena with the rest of the Brown family and will discuss the huge success of an incredibly popular yet incredibly divisive show.

As a US resident these days, O’Carroll will also talk about Donald Trump and literally finding himself in the eye of the storm as Hurricane Irma swept through Florida recently.

Philly McMahon

Ahead of a Dublin club semi-final this weekend, the Ballymun man will chat to Ryan about picking up his fifth All-Ireland medal and Dublin completing the three-in-a-row after last month’s victory over Mayo.

With a new book out, called The Choice, Philly will also discuss the huge impact the drug-related death of his brother had on him and his family.


Not many people are well-known enough to go only by their first name/alter ego, but Franc (Peter Kelly) is and with Say Yes To The Dress Ireland returning to our screens, he’ll be chatting about all things wedding-related, how his business survived the recession and how emotions run high in the search for that special dress for the big day.

State of the Nation discussion

The state of the nation will be up for discussion with politician Fidelma Healy Eames, journalist Kitty Holland and columnist Terry Prone on the panel.

Fr. Joe McDonald

Ordained at 45, Fr. Joe McDonald has long called for a more open and welcoming Catholic Church in Ireland and will discuss a controversial book he has recently penned, titled Why The Irish Church Deserves to Die.

He’ll also be telling viewers why he believes the Irish Church has failed Jesus and the Gospel; what could be done to rescue it and why he feels the survival of the Church is by no means absolute.
