Celebrity architect Dermot Bannon leads a Late Late line-up including the very best of new Irish Enterprise, impressionist Conor Sketches and Galway hurler Davy Glennon this Friday, February 1.
Ahead of his new four-part series, Dermot Bannon’s Incredible Homes, Dermot will join host Ryan Tubridy to compare and contrast how people live in different cities around the globe such as Sydney, London, Melbourne and Sweden.
The Late Late will celebrate the best of new Irish enterprise with some of the inventions and products set to make a mark in the coming year. Exhibits include a new GAA training tool, an innovative way of farming, and a very unusual memento to remember loved ones who are no longer with us.
At the age of 14, Gillian Quinn left school to move to England, but family circumstances meant she never returned to education, and never completed a state examination. After seeing her husband Niall Quinn receive an honorary degree some years ago, Gillian was inspired to return to college and joins Ryan to chat about how she's proved that it's never too late to get an education.
Known for his impressions of some of the sporting world’s best-known characters including Joe Brolly, Davy Fitzgerald and Tiger Woods, Conor Moore Sketches is on the sofa to chat about his rise to success, and how his impressions helped him secure a gig with a major US TV network.
For years, Galway hurler Davy Glennon hid a chronic gambling addiction from his friends, family and employers before a life of lies caught up with him. The All Ireland winner joins Ryan to discuss the events that led to him receiving 240 hours of community service, and how his life has changed since coming clean about his addiction.
There’s also music from tenor Alfie Bow.
You can all that on The Late Late Show, RTÉ One, Friday, February 1st at 9.35pm.
