Tomorrow evening's Late Late Show will be incredibly emotional: it will feature an interview with Bernard Lucas.
He is the husband of coast guard volunteer Caitríona Lucas, who tragically died during a rescue mission in September last year.
The mum-of-two was the first member of the Irish Coast Guard to lose their life during a rescue mission off the coast of county Clare in September last year, after she and two other crew members were thrown from their boat when it capsized during a search operation for a missing person.
Tomorrow night her family will be in studio to talk to Ryan Tubridy about the devastating impact of her death.
She was described by her 20-year-old son, Ben, as having a great love for "the sea and the coastguard… her work in the library, especially the projects with the children. My mother had lots of great qualities. She was caring, honest, kind and, above all, dedicated.”
Caitríona was also a mum to daughter, Emma.
The show will be celebrating the work of the Irish Coast Guard and the RNLI, and hearing from members hailing from all around the country.
There will also be stories from people who owe their lives to the tireless efforts of those organisations.
