Ryan will be joined by Irish country stars Cliona Hagan, Susan McCann, Declan Nerney, Robert Mizzell, and Michael English, who will perform some of their songs in a country music studio session.

When CJ Stander arrived at Cork Airport in 2012, he considered himself in the end of his rugby career. Nine years on, he departs Irish shores with 51 Irish caps, including two wins against the All Blacks, a Grand Slam, a British and Irish Lions tour, as well as his star performances for Munster. Tomorrow evening, CJ joins Ryan to say goodbye.

Dervla Kirwan from Smother, the trilling series filmed in Lahinch, will be speaking about what viewers can expect for the finale. Dervla will also speak about marking 25 years since Ballykissangel, and voice her fears for Brexit Britain.

With the US Masters this weekend, Padraig Harrington will give his opinion on the competition and talk about how preparations are going for Team Europe ahead of The Ryder Cup later this year.

As we await the reopening of Ireland's museums and galleries, Ryan will take a behind-the-scenes look through the historical gems in Ireland's National Collection, including some of the most intriguing personal objects in Irish history.

Plus, Declan O'Rourke will be performing The Harbour, from his brand-new album, Arrivals, which was produced by Paul Weller.

Watch The Late Late Show tonight on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
