After the announcement of the guests for tomorrow's Late Late Show, it appears that the Good Friday Agreement will be the main topic of discussion.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, the Late Late Show has announced some special guests for tomorrow, April 7. Alongside Nicholas Trimble and Aoife Moore, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern will talk about his experiences of the historic day.
With Nicholas Trimble, Ryan Tubridy will be joined by the son of the late David Trimble. When the historic agreement was signed, he was still a child, but he will discus the risks his father took and reflect on his legacy.
Following the announcement of US President Joe Biden's visit a few weeks ago, US Ambassador Claire Cronin will discuss her Irish roots and what to expect from the visit.
Irish journalist Aoife Moore will discuss the agreement‘s origins, what it means, and the challenges that it faces today. In 2020, Moore became well known for breaking the Oireachtas Golf Society scandal, "Golfgate", with Paul Hosford.
Music will be provided by Irish rock musician Brian Kennedy, who will sing the song 'Love, Life and Happiness', written about the peace process.
"Being a Belfast man I was particularly inspired by the positive progress of the peace process that was all over the news," Kennedy wrote on his website.
Alanna Quinn Idris, who was blinded in one eye after being attacked in December 2021, has also been announced as a guest. She discusses how her victim impact statement went in court and how she is currently doing.
Later in the evening, Badly Drawn Boy will perform his song 'Something to Talk About'. The UK indie singer-songwriter has previously released nine studio albums, including hits such as 'You Were Right' and 'Once Around the Block'.
