CORK rugby legend Peter O’Mahony will appear on the Late Late Show tonight to discuss his man-of-the-match heroics against the All Blacks last weekend.
O’Mahony was the standout performer of an Irish team that was full of heroes during their 16-9 defeat of New Zealand.
He will discuss the momentous win with host Ryan Tubridy and chat about why the team is poised for success in next year’s Rugby World Cup.
In the aftermath of the win last weekend, New Zealand retained their world number one status but All Blacks boss Steve Hansen believes the Irish can now call themselves the globe’s best.
Praise has been heaped on O’Mahony for squeezing out every last drop of effort during a brilliant defensive performance by the Irish.
However, he will be keen to stress that the team will not get carried away with themselves ahead of next year’s Rugby World Cup.
Meanwhile, Tubridy will also be joined on the couch by Irish boyband Boyzone as they embark on a farewell tour.
Boyzone remain one of the most successful Irish bands ever, with more than 25 million records sold, including several number 1 albums and numerous top-selling singles.
As they embark on their farewell tour, Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy discuss why it’s time to say goodbye in the year of their 25th anniversary.
Viewers will also meet some of the entrants for Carer of the Year and hear about the amazing work they do in incredibly difficult circumstances.
The master of impressions Mario Rosenstock will be providing the laughs, and music will be from The Stunning who are joined by the Irish Chamber Orchestra.
There is also a pair of tickets to next week’s Late Late Toy Show up for grabs.
