Saoirse Ronan is one of Ireland's BIGGEST ever stars, so we cherish any moment when the Carlow actress lands on Irish soil.

Fresh from her presenting gig at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles, Ronan returns to Dublin to lead the all-star line-up of tomorrow night's The Late Late Show on RTÉ.

The 24-year-old already has three Oscar nominations under belt, and now there's talk of Mary, Queen of Scots finally earning her the coveted golden statue.

Saoirse joins Ryan Tubridy to have a chat about working with Margot Robbie on the new movie, and her journey from The Clinic and Proof all the way to working with Margot Robbie in Hollywood.

We can't wait to hear the goss about life on set, the Oscars buzz and what stars she wants to work with in the future.

She's making the Irish look DAMN GOOD, and we're proud of the gal. She's had an illustrious career already at a young age, but she's just getting started.

Ronan will be joined on The Late Late Show by hilarious actor John C. Reilly and comic Steve Coogan, who stop by for a chat about their new Laurel and Hardy biopic, Stan and Ollie.

Padraig Harrington also joins the panel of celebrity guests on the couch, and will no doubt converse with Ryan about the 2020 Ryder Cup.

Last but not least, four of Ireland's most successful young people will visit Tubridy; boxer Michael Conlon, Irish actor and BAFTA Rising Star nominee Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, The Killing of a Sacred Deer), journalist Ellen Coyne and influencer Rosie Connolly.

Music from indie-rockers The Academic and spoken word poems from Natalya O'Flaherty round up the evening, catch it tomorrow night at 9:35pm on RTÉ One.



We don't know how Saoirse Ronan does it. 

The Irish actress has been out on the most chaotic press tour ever for Brooklyn (seriously she's been everywhere), is nominated for an Oscar and has another two movies coming out in 2016. 

And yet, the Carlow native still has time to plot her next film role.

Saoirse has just revealed that she will be starring in another adaptation of an Ian McEwan novel, her first being 2007's uber-successful Atonement. 

At just 13, Saoirse was Oscar-nominated for her turn in the film and the project single handedly propelled her career into the stratosphere. 

The 21-year-old will star in an adaptation of McEwan's 2007 Booker Prize nominated novella, On Chesil Beach. 

The moving story documents the honeymoon of a young couple who struggle to come to terms with their varying backgrounds, fears and issues with intimacy. 

"It's an extremely exciting prospect to be reunited with Saoirse Ronan on such a beautiful and heartbreaking project," said producers Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley, who worked with the actress on the 2012 Neil Jordan film, Byzantium. 

The film is set to be helmed by theatre director Dominic Cooke and to begin filming later this Spring.
