The Guest List For Tomorrow's Late Late Show Is Sure To Delight Irish Sports Fans

Ryan Tubridy will return to our screens tomorrow night as the Late Late Show ends its summer hiatus, and for once the guest list is actually looking pretty decent.

It will be a very sport-heavy affair, with a number of Irish stars making an appearance.

The Ireland women's hockey team will be on the show to discuss their unlikely journey to the World Cup final this summer. Their efforts in reaching the final captivated the nation, and they will surely receive a fantastic reception tomorrow night.

Also featuring will be some key figures from All-Ireland hurling champions Limerick. Manager John Kiely, captain Declan Hannon and strength and conditioning coach Joe O'Connor will give the story of how they led the county to their first Liam McCarthy victory in 45 years.

Medal winners Thomas Barr and Rhys McClenaghan will be on-hand to share their experiences from the European Championships in Berlin. After Barr's medal near-miss at the 2016 Olympics, it will be interesting to hear him the tale of how he picked himself up to become the first male Irish athlete to win a European spring medal.

Swimmer Ellen Keane rounds out the sporting contingent on the show, where she will discuss the success of the Irish team at the recent European Para-Swimming Championships held in Dublin, as well as the athletic championships in Berlin.

Unfortunately, Piers Morgan will also show his face at some stage. Can't be all good news I suppose.

The programme will get underway on RTÉ 1 at 9.35pm.
