Rugby hero Paul O'Connell and Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham are among the big names to join Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show this week, as well as a divisive noughties rock group.

Limerick legend O'Connell will chat about what life is like now that he has hung up his boots. He'll be giving viewers his take on the Irish team that reached new heights with a Grand Slam and back-to-back Six Nations titles and where the inspirational team talks he is famous for come from.

Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham recently visited the Syrian refugee camps in Jordan. He joins Ryan in studio to talk about what he saw, why he's angry about it and what he thinks the Irish Government - and the Irish people - should be doing to help. Writer and raconteur Michael Harding will also join Tubridy to share his life musings.

Pippa O'Connor will be in studio to help three volunteers revamp their winter wardrobe live on air, expect plenty of take-home fashion tips. And one of Ireland's best-loved actors, Pat Shortt will chat about his new film The Flag, as well as the heart-wrenching Smalltown, which aired on TV3 last month.

Prime Time's Barry Cummins has been invited to talk about 13-year-old missing schoolboy Philip Cairns, as well as the cases of some of Ireland's most high profile missing persons from Annie McCarrick to Esra Uyrun and the families of Deirdre Jacob and Trevor Deely will be in studio to tell their stories. 

Music comes from The Three Amigos, Mick Flannery and a band with a divisive reputation, Nickleback.

Catch it all on The Late Late Show, RTE One this Friday at 9.35pm
