Irish acting legend to appear on Late Late Show this week

There is something for everyone this Friday on The Late Late Show.

Ryan will be joined by acting legend Gabriel Byrne, as well as Mary Lou McDonald, Caitriona Balfe and Dermot Bannon.

Gabriel Byrne will chat to Ryan about his career, which took him from Bracken to Bel Air. He’ll be telling viewers about his new film Hereditary, which has already been described as one of the scariest horror movies in years.

Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald will be on the show to discuss taking over the leadership of the party from Gerry Adams after 35 years. According to RTÉ, she will be sharing her vision for the Sinn Féin party, north and south of the border.

Irish actress Caitriona Balfe, best known for Money Monster and Outlander, joins Ryan to talk about how she went from growing up in Monaghan to finding international fame.

Dermot Bannon will be on the couch to chat about the new series of Room to Improve, which starts on Sunday. He'll chat about renovating Daniel and Majella O’Donnell's home. We got a taster of that episode already and it looks very promising.
