Date for your Diary – 28th September 2013 !

Friends of the Simon Ryan Theatre brings the Premier Late Late Show to the Tipperary Excel, Tipperary Town on Saturday, 28th September 2013. Based on RTE’s  famous  show, Tipp FM’s well respected broadcaster Fran Curry will host and interview a selection of some of  Tipperary ‘s  successful and well known natives, including  horse racing stars Mick Kinane & Charlie Swan, rugby legends Denis Leamy & Alan Quinlan,  Hurling & Camogie All Stars Brendan Cummins & Una O’Dywer,  from the world of politics, Minister of State  Tom Hayes and Minister of State Alan Kelly, Mary Hanafin and Martin Mansergh, Celebrity Chef  Ronan Ryan alongside some entrepreneurs flying the Tipperary Flag on the national and international business stage. Coordinating all  “behind the scenes”  matters will be Crona Byrne, daughter of the one and only  Gay Byrne, who honed her craft supporting her father for many years on  RTÉ’  Late Late Show.


Ireland’s Aviator; the just published biography on  Tony Ryan, will have a Tipperary launch  on the night.  Kerry Ryan, daughter of the late Simon Ryan and niece of Tony Ryan commenting on this special edition to the Premier LATE LATE Show lineup said  “It is both  fitting and poignant the biography will  have a launch in Tipperary, the place of  Tony’s birth and location of the Simon Ryan Theatre which he co-funded and named after his brother Simon”.  The Tipperary Excel Arts Centre, home to the Simon Ryan Theatre is located only three miles from Limerick Junction, the birth place of Tony Ryan


The Premier Late Late Show, which is a fund raiser for the Tipperary Excel  will be a unique and lively mix  of  sports, current affairs, topical discussion and musical performances. It will give an insight  into the lives of some of Co. Tipperary ‘s well known and respected sons and daughters. To keep with the spirit of the Gathering – the coming together of people who share a common bond, in this case Tipperary, we hope to cover many topics that relate to the Premier County.
