The Late Late Show is keeping things homegrown this week with a host of Irish names on the bill.

Sherlock star Andrew Scott will join Ryan Tubridy in studio to talk about his new Irish film, Handsome Devil.

He'll be joined on the sofa by director John Butler and they'll discuss the inspiring message behind the movie and what the marriage equality vote meant to them.

Scott no doubt won't escape without sharing a few snippets on Bond and Sherlock.

Elsewhere, journalists Owen Conlon and Stephen Breen will discuss the Kinahan clan's feud with the Hutches.

They'll reveal how Christy Kinahan, from a respectable north Dublin family, ended up overseeing a global crime cartel worth over €750 million and will explain why this feud could prove to be their downfall.

RTE star Katherine Lynch will also appear to talk about the past year which saw her on Operation Transformation and Dancing with the Stars.  Also, 50 years after his death she'll pay tribute to her grandfather, poet Patrick Kavanagh.

Some of Ireland's newest citizens will also be in studio to share their stories while Barry Devlin of Horslips fame will guide viewers through some of the most iconic Irish TV ads as restored by the IFI Film Archive.  You can get a preview here: WATCH: Remember these retro Irish TV ads from the 60s, 70s, and 80s?
