Kevin Kilbane

On the Late Late Show…

Gareth Naughten writes:

Queen of the Liberties Imelda May is back with a new album and a completely new look. She’ll be joining Ryan on The Late Late Show to chat about developing her sound and taking inspiration from a hectic couple of years when writing her new album.

…Star Trek and Commitments actor Colm Meaney plays the late Martin McGuinness in his new movie The Journey. He’ll be on The Late Late Show couch to share his thoughts on what it was like to play one of the icons of the Republican movement, his own encounters with McGuinness and the legacy he leaves behind.

…Television presenter Kathryn Thomas and former international footballer Kevin Kilbane recently took to the streets of Dublin in wheelchairs with one mission – to get from A to B in the shortest time possible. What they discovered really opened their eyes about the realities of just how inaccessible Ireland’s streets are for wheelchair users…..

      Was called up at youth level for England but declined as he wanted to play for ROI.
      Both of his parents are Irish.
      110 caps.
      Total mercenary.

    2. Friscondo

      That is so unfair. Kilbanes roots are firmly in Achlill, and he can be seen as much in Croker as the Aviva. Also, he’s a thoroughly decent guy who played his heart out every time he donned the green.

    3. Brother Barnabas

      Ah tersticles to that, Eamonn. I don’t think there’s been a more committed player for Ireland than Kilbane. Not the most talented, admittedly.

    1. Topsy

      Is Dustin going to play.? Fell down the stairs, that’s a good one. More likely he fell off the white Wagon.

      1. Compassion Cash

        It’s great wagon to be fair . Hope he hits a few dingers. I’ll have a dip into a bag myself to cheer him on

      1. Doug

        Great player and performs at Augusta but off form. Looking for a few long shots myself – Kisner, Hadwin, Leishman & Berger all look like promising ew bets. Big hitting is important at Augusta but it’s an in form putter that always rises to the top

    2. Harry Molloy

      There’s a good competition where you pick 3 player with combined odds of over 120 on but I think it may have closed at 1

    The first two are pretty good guests. The last one there…. why not have actual wheelchair users speak for themselves?

    1. ahjayzis

      Because Kathryn Thomas has to have her 1000 hours of tv exposure a year or the DG’s sex tape goes viral.

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        Also, because wheelchair users are boring. Celebrity wheelchair users: THAT’S what people want to see.

        1. missred

          There can, frankly, never be a replacement for Celebrity Jigs & Reels. A laced-shoe shaped hole with a void that can never be filled. Hup!

        2. Brother Barnabas

          And the LLS studio is not wheelchair accessible. I can’t say who but there’s a guy who works there (skinny, big ears, silly laugh, tendency to momentarily close eyes before asking what he thinks is a probing question) who HATES disabled people. Because of him, a series of ramps and other obstacles were erected to keep wheelchair users out. FACT,

    RTE has just found out about Imelda’s ‘new look’. Always on the button lads.

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      Saw her on Jools Holland, performing one of her new songs. She’s a phenomenal singer.

      1. Spaghetti Hoop

        Saw that episode too. A sultry Imelda. I think she’s a lovely warm-hearted person but the ‘howayiz’ girl-next-door chatty style didn’t go down too well on telly and I think she’ll be taken seriously now with the new ‘luke’.

        1. mildred st. meadowlark

          I hope so. She’s positively magnetic live. Far more talented than some of our more popular musical exports.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            Strictly speaking, positively negative and negatively magnetic would be just as good, right?

    1. Anomanomanom

      yes. Its the late late shows mandate, interviews with who work or have worked there.

  3. Murtles

    Ahhh Katherine Thomas, thank god, I haven’t seen her on the telly in the last two……seconds.

    RTE tactics again, quick we can’t get an actual celebrity, let’s interview one of our own staff.

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      She’s very shallow that wan. Remember the poor nurse in England that was prank-called? Thomas was on the radio (filling in for some other host) in convulsions and slagging off the poor woman. When the nurse took her own life, Thomas made no apology for her derisions.

      1. Anomanomanom

        Why would she. It was a joke, a funny joke. What happened afterwards had nothing to do with her.

    1. bertie blenkinsop

      I know…
      talented, entertaining and gorgeous- why would you want HER on your show?
