The lineup of Ryan Tubridy's final Late Late Show has been announced by RTÉ.

President Michael D. Higgins has invited Ryan Tubridy to join him in Áras an Uachtaráin for their final Late Late interview together. President Higgins has been a regular guest on The Late Late Show throughout his presidency, joining Tubridy at key moments over the past 14 years. This Friday the President will share his thoughts about where the nation is at, as we move on from the Centenary commemorations and why we must never forget the lessons of the past. 

In a very special Late Late Toy Show reunion, some of the show's favourite kids from over the years bid Ryan a fond farewell. As well as a catch-up with the now ‘not-so-little’ stars, viewers will also be treated to a Toy Show performance which has been kept entirely under wraps from Tubridy. 

A trad super-group will assemble to give the host a send-off, including Andrea Corr, John Sheahan (The Dubliners), Moya Brennan (Clannad), Steve Wickham (The Waterboys), Sharon Shannon, Andrew Hendy (The Mary Wallopers), Jim Lockhart (Horslips), Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (Altan), Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames), Niamh Dunne (Beoga), Jim Higgins (The Stunning), Mike Hanrahan (Stockton’s Wing), Ciarán Owens (The Tumbling Paddies), Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh (Aeons), Frankie Gavin (De Dannan), Maureen Codd (Cuckoos Nest), Shayan & Shahab Coohe (Nava), Debbie Byrne and Tara Howley.

One of Ireland’s latest breakthrough singer-songwriters Cian Ducrot will give a performance to mark the occasion.

There will be more familiar faces dropping in and many surprises for both the audience, and Tubridy.

Host Ryan Tubridy said: "Tomorrow night is going to be a night of endings for sure, but beginnings for definite. While I will be saying a lot of goodbyes for my last Late Late Show, it will also be a night of gratitude. Gratitude to all the people I have worked with and continue to work with and their families. And enormous gratitude to the guests, the artists, the singers, and the ‘doers’ who have come through the door and graced us with their presence.
And of course, my greatest gratitude to my family who have been so loving and patient and my greatest supporters. They are the ones to whom I dedicate my last show. They are my constant. I love them so much and I want them to know that.
 
“I also want to say thank you to the viewers who stuck with me, with us and with the show for the past 14 years. The viewers’ loyalty, decency, kindness and generosity has taken my breath away on a weekly basis. I sit looking at my desk this morning at about 300 or 400 cards and letters from people I don't even know, that have come from all around Ireland and in some cases all around the world.
 
“I am humbled, I am grateful, and I am excited because this is the end of one phase of this extraordinarily exciting life I have had so far. I will be turning the big 5-0 on Sunday so, it’s the perfect time to look ahead and welcome a new chapter. Until I am ready to share that next chapter, I am going to take some time off, I will reflect and process it all. My final words about my final Late Late Show are ‘Thank You’.”

Ryan Tubridy’s final Late Late Show airs on Friday, May 26th.
