To Whom it Concerns, on this Friday night’s Late Late Show



Rhys McClenaghan will chat about being the first Irish person ever to win Gold at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, why Katie Taylor is his inspiration and what it felt like to achieve a dream he has had since jumping off his first trampoline at age six.

Singing sensation Mary Black will join Ryan ahead of her Lifetime Achievement Award at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards later this month. She will talk about her incredible life and career in music and will treat us to some of her favourite songs to perform.

When he swapped GAA for soccer, Martin O’Neill couldn’t have imagined the road it would take him on, European Cups with the legendary Brian Clough, cup final wins in Wembley and a managerial career that saw him mastermind some of Ireland’s biggest wins in the past decade. Martin will discuss all, including how he feels about his time as Ireland manager now that the dust has settled.


Offaly native and YouTube superstar with a massive 28 million followers Jacksepticeye, otherwise known as Sean McLoughlin, will join Ryan on Friday night to mark 10 years in the business.

From struggling in school to writing four books and sharing stories with over 1 million online followers, comedian, and author Rory O’Connor, also known as Rory’s Stories, will chat all things comedy and the importance of perseverance.


Ryan will speak with 12-year-old Cara Darmody from Tipperary who sat her Junior Cert Maths exam last June, to raise funds for therapy services for children with special needs. As she awaits her results, she will talk about what inspired her to take on this challenge and her plan to tackle the Leaving Cert next year!


Plus, there will be a performance from Dublin musician Ailbhe Reddy as she is set to embark on a string of UK and European tour dates. Ailbhe will perform her newest song Shitshow.
