Friday night’s Late Late Show on RTÉ promises to be an emotional one with Michelle and Robert Ryan, children of the murdered Bobby Ryan joining Ryan Tubridy

It was the longest running murder trial in Irish criminal history which gripped the nation for 13 weeks before last week’s guilty verdict was returned against Patrick Quirke.

Hearing what it was like to have their Fathers life, loves and death paraded nightly before the nation will be compelling viewing.

The stress and strain of the Leaving Cert will also be discussed with a panel of six students from around the country.

Chart-topping band Kodaline will be in studio for a chat ahead of their Dublin shows later this month, and they’ll also perform their hit single ‘Brother’.

In her new book Can I Say No?, Stefanie Preissner explores why simply saying ‘no’ is such a difficult thing to do. Stefanie joins Ryan to discuss how we’ve lost the ability to say no and how, by reacquainting ourselves with this two letter word, we can go on to live happier, less stressful and more fulfilling lives.

The Late Late Show is sponsored by Entertainment for Business member Renault who extended an original three year partnership by a further three this time last year.
