Our first female President of Ireland is on The Late Late Show tonight

Featuring a Hollywood movie star and a former President of Ireland.

While we're counting down the days to The Late Late Toy Show, for now we will have to settle for the regularly scheduled programming.


Here's what we're dealing with on this week's episode:

First up is Michael J Fox, who will be chatting about the legacy of his best-known films, the work of his foundation, which is researching a cure for Parkinson's disease, and how he feels to be turning 60. Yes, 60.

30 years since becoming the first ever female President of Ireland, Mary Robinson will be on to talk about a special moment in Irish history.

She'll also be discussing why Covid has lessons for us in the fight against climate change, whether Joe Biden's election might make a difference and why The Elders spoke out about Donald Trump's refusal to enable a smooth transition of power.

Social media stars The Flemings will be talking about how they have danced their way through lockdown at home in Kerry, keeping their spirits up since March while also attempting to entertain the nation.

The stars of Irish Women in Harmony (including Ruth Anne, Aimée, Moya Brennan, Sibeal, Laoise and Erica Cody) will be in the studio with a very special performance of their Christmas single in aid of ISPCC, Together at Christmas.

Throughout the show, viewers will also get a look at the book Old Ireland in Colour, which brings the past to life by adding colour to black and white photos of Irish daily life between the 1870s and 1960s.


Finally, there will be a performance in studio from Dublin rapper, Malaki, with his unique take on Van Morrison's 'Someone Like You'.
