In a wide-ranging interview, the leader of the opposition, Micheal Martin, will chat with host Ryan Tubridy about his time leading Fianna Fáil, rebuilding the party in the past decade and his vision for the future.
He’ll be discussing the decision to support the current Fine Gael-led Government through a confidence and supply motion, how he thinks that has impacted on Fianna Fáil’s popularity with the electorate and how long more that agreement might last. And he'll be asked what he really thinks of Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald.
Ryan will be chatting to Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen, the two women behind the publishing phenomenon that started with the huge success of Oh My God, What A Complete Aisling. Now onto their second novel and with a film in development, they’ll be telling viewers where the inspiration for the Aisling books comes from and why they think it has connected so well with audiences.
As he prepares to take to the stage at the 3 Arena for the first time, Laois man and Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick will be in studio to chat about the incredible life story that forms the backbone of his new stage show and how love, hope and science can make miracles happen in the veterinary surgery.
Sports broadcaster and recent dancing convert, Des Cahill joins Ryan to chat about uncovering some unexpected family secrets in his new book, Play It Again, Des.
Plus Sibéal will be performing her stunning version of The Cranberries’ Linger as Gaeilge; and more music from Kodaline.
