From Tokyo to Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town to Moscow via New York, the show will host the trad session to end all trad sessions! The show will also mark the most extraordinary twelve months in living memory with a very special dedication to a recipient who represents the very best of the Irish spirit, The Late Late Show St Patrick’s Day Award will be presented live on the night.
Members of the Irish diaspora from all across the world have been invited to become part of the virtual audience for a Late Late Show on Saint Patrick's Day.
Traditionally, hundreds of thousands of people from across the world flock to Ireland to celebrate St Patrick's Day, with parades and celebrations also taking place across the world.
This year, although public events may be cancelled, The Late Late Show will become a global hub for St Patrick's Day celebrations, uniting Irish people everywhere for a very special evening of entertainment.
"Since the pandemic hit, we have made it our business to embrace Ireland like never before on The Late Late Show and show the best of who we are, and that is what we are going continue to do on St Patrick's day, and in some style!" says host Ryan Tubridy.
Viewers from all over the world will be welcomed to watch live on the night (or morning, depending where you live!) on the RTE Player.
