In the run-up to next week’s National Ploughing Championships in Offaly, much loved double act, and hosts of RTE's Ploughing Live, Marty Morrissey and Aine Lawlor, are set to appear on the Ray D'Arcy Show.

As well as that, actor Stephen Rea tells Ray about his role in Irish box office smash Black 47 and Senator Lynn Ruane reveals the intimate details from her new memoir

From Michael Collins to The Crying Game and Interview with a Vampire, actor Stephen Rea is linked to a host of Hollywood classics. Ray will be talking to the Oscar nominated actor about his role in Black 47, the number one movie at the Irish box office, based on the darkest year of the Irish Famine.

Exclusively on the Ray D’Arcy Show, social activist and Senator Lynn Ruane reveals the intimate details of her new book, People Like Me – an inspirational memoir about family, class and identity.

Ray meets transgender actor Rebecca Root, the first trans actor to play a trans role in a professional Irish play and finds out more about her upcoming Hollywood roles, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Joaquin Phoenix.

And in studio with Ray is photographer Gerry Mooney, who got the royal seal of approval this week when his photograph of Meghan Markle, was personally chosen to be the Duchess's birthday ‘Thank You’ card.

That’s the Ray D’Arcy Show Saturday at 9:50pm on RTE One!
