Tonight's RTE Late Late Show guests revealed

Laois could get a mention on this Friday night's Late Late Show, host Ryan Tubridy and guests will pay tribute to The Chieftains' founder Paddy Moloney.

Paddy's parents were Laois native and rooted in local traditional music around Ballyfin. They brought this love to Dublin where they raised Paddy and his siblings surrounded by music.

Paddy was frequent visitor to Laois on his summer holidays where his talent for music first emerged. He went on to be the leader of The Chieftains which became an Irish music supergroup around the globe.

Ryan will pay tribute to Paddy and his music through music, songs and stories and bid farewell to a most remarkable figure in Irish music. 
Action hero, actor Liam Neeson will talk about his most important role, as UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador for the Get a Vaccine - Give a Vaccine campaign.
Angela Scanlon, host of RTE's hotly anticipated new Saturday night entertainment show Angela Scanlon’s Ask Me Anything will be keeping it real.
In a rare television interview, Ireland and Munster rugby stalwart Keith Earls, the second-highest try-scorer in the Ireland jersey, will chat to Ryan about the reality of growing up in Moyross and his many physical and mental battles throughout his time in professional rugby.

Tune in this Friday night at 9.35pm.
