ROI manager McCarthy, nurse who saved bus drivers life and Fair City stars set for Late Late

Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy leads a Late Late Show line-up that includes Lavinia Kerwick and a celebration of 30 years of Fair City.

Having built a career as a professional footballer, manager, and pundit, Mick McCarthy joins host Ryan Tubridy to discuss how he feels about his new, yet familiar, job and his hopes for the future as his comeback game approaches later this month.

Also joining Ryan is Lavinia Kerwick who, in 1992, made history by being the first person in the state to waive her anonymity to speak publicly about her rape.

On International Women’s Day, discusses why she feels we need to support people who have been through similar circumstances, and how we need to talk more openly about consent as a country.

A special appearance will be made by Fair City stars as the 30th anniversary of the soap approaches.

After 4,500 episodes, viewers will be treated to a rare behind the scenes glimpse of Carrigstown as Ryan throws open the doors of McCoys and speaks to some of its most loved characters.

Nikki Bradley also joins Ryan to discuss some of the gruelling endurance challenges she has completed to raise money for cancer charities, and why she’s on a mission to encourage more women to take up sport.

Bradley decided to take back her life after receiving the news that she had to permanently rely on crutches.

Brave nurse Aoife McGivney who made headlines during the week after saving a bus driver who had a heart attack will join Ryan to share what happened.

She was expecting her usual commute to the Mater Hospital in Dublin when the driver of the bus she was travelling on had a heart attack.
