The late show

RTE One, 9:35 p.m.

Michael Bublé will perform the music from his new album “Higher” in the studio. And boxing legend Barry McGuigan will take time to climb Croagh Patrick with Charlie Bird in the morning. He will dedicate his rise not only to Charlie Bird and Vicky Phelan, but also to his late daughter, Nika. He wants to help raise money for Pieta House.

From tweeting last September about declining radio interviews due to ‘major problems with my speech’ and not knowing the cause, to an appearance on the Late Late Show in December, Charlie Bird has turned his devastating diagnosis motor neurone disease into a major fundraising and awareness phenomenon.

Across the country, people are pledging to go to a local hill or mountain and “climb with Charlie” to raise money for Pieta House and Motor Neurone Disease. Charlie’s friends are also out west to support him there. The show will be broadcast live in Westport to speak to supporters such as Daniel O’Donnell, Dermot Bannon, Roz Purcell, George Lee, Joanna Donnelly and many more.

And Michael English will perform a song written exclusively to support the climb with Charlie.
