Rod Stewart

Tonight on RTÉ One.

On the Late Late Show.

A pre-recorded interview with singer Rod Stewart will be broadcast.

Sarah Whitecare, of RTE, writes:

During the clip [above], host Ryan Tubridy presents Rod with a collection of poetry by Joseph Mary Plunkett, published in 1916. When asked why the story of Joseph Plunkett means so much to him, an emotional Rod said:

“It’s everything about h​im, everything about him. This guy was so… Sorry… [gets emotional] This guy was a very intelligent man… so were all the leaders… It just means so much to me because it was just f**king unfair the way the Irish were treated.”

Unnaturally spiky.

The Late Late Show is on RTÉ One tonight at 9.35pm.

Yesterday: Staying In Tomorrow?


You may recall the haus-tiger (above) found last week in a lane way in Kilmainham/ Inchicore, Dublin 8.

Congratulations, #Ireland! We’ve done it again. Another housing crisis, and we are the second WORST in the world in terms of housing affordability.
