The Late Late Show to Celebrate Mary Black with The Black Family, Danny O’Reilly and Róisín O
The Late Late Show is to Celebrate Mary Black with The Black Family, Danny O’Reilly and Róisín O.
The Late Late Show celebrates the career of one of Ireland’s most beloved singers this week with a Mary Black special tomorrow night.
With a career spanning five decades, Mary Black is a legend of the Irish music scene with her iconic voice helping define a generation.
To celebrate Mary’s career, and 30 years since the release of the multi-platinum ‘By the Time It Gets Dark’, she is joined on Friday night by family and friends. The Black Family – Mary, Frances, Shay, Michael and Martin – will reunite for a performance. She will also be joined by the next generation for two very special performances with son Danny O’Reilly, lead singer of The Coronas, and daughter Róisín O.
Viewers will also be hearing from Robbie and Claudine Keane and other famous faces who want to pay tribute to her.
Paul Burrell was Princess Diana’s rock for a decade until her untimely death almost 20 years ago. He’ll be giving viewers the inside track on the royals, what it was like to work for the most famous woman in the world and what was going on in those final few months of her life. He’ll also be filling viewers in on life since, from his time in the celebrity jungle to helping wealthy Chinese people brush up on their etiquette before travelling to Europe; and coming out after his recent marriage to husband Graham.
As Enda Kenny bows out as Taoiseach and a leadership battle kicks into gear in Fine Gael, independent TD Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran will be in studio to chat about what lies ahead for new politics and the Independent Alliance. He’ll also be telling viewers about his own battles on the long road to the Dáil.
Ryan Tubridy will be catching up with Irish garden designer Diarmuid Gavin as he prepares to bring his Chelsea Flower Show medal winning garden to Dundrum. He’ll be filling viewers in on the major projects he is working on across the world from China to redesigning the childhood playground of the late Queen Mother in the UK.
Watch The Late Late Show on RTÉ One tomorrow, Friday the 19th of May at 9.35pm.
This looks like a very exciting line-up, we can’t wait to tune in.
