Irish Olympic star Jack Woolley will tomorrow night give his first TV interview since the horror attack on him in Dublin which shocked the nation.

The attack on the young Taekwondo star was first broken here on and made international headlines across the world.

The brave young Dubliner will join host Ryan Tubridy to discuss how he's coped with being thrust into the spotlight over the last six weeks.

He’ll talk about his road to recovery, why he wants to inspire Ireland's next generation of athletes and why he can't wait to get back into the ring as Tokyo slips away from view

Stars of the new hit TV drama KIN, Ciarán Hinds and Clare Dunne will join Ryan on the show where Ciarán will share about the joy of filming in Dublin again and his childhood spent dancing in Belfast.

Clare will chat about why she could never be a crime boss and the real stories that inspire her.

Tuam historian Catherine Corless and her supportive husband, Aidan will join Ryan in a special in-depth interview like no other to discuss Catherine’s new book Belonging: A Memoir, her quest for the truth about Tuam Mother and Baby Home in Galway and how her early childhood life events shaped her to the person we know today.

The show will also be looking at some incredible photographs from Old Ireland in Colour 2, the much-anticipated sequel to last year’s bestselling book. One of its authors, Dr Sarah-Anne Buckley will talk through some of the superb images brought to life through cutting-edge technology, historical research and expert colourisation. Plus, Wallis Bird will be performing her classic song To My Bones while The Three Amigos be giving the nation a Garth treat with a special medley of his hits, as speculation mounts he will be returning for shows in Ireland next year. * The Late Late Show RTE One tomorrow 9.30pm
