15 Of The Best Twitter Reactions To Michael D's Interview On The Late Late Show
There was a whole lotta love
If you decided to stay in last night, you picked a good Friday to do it as the line-up for The Late Late Show was actually pretty decent.
Among the guests were Paralympic champions Ellen Keane and Niamh McCarthy, Can't Cope Won't Cope creator Stefanie Preissner, Love/Hate's John Connors and comedian Jess Thom, who spoke candidly about her experiences with Tourette's Syndrome.
Of course, one man stole the show and that was our President himself, Michael D Higgins.
After being welcomed with a standing ovation, he gave a hugely engaging interview and it's fair to say the whole country was charmed.
Here are some of the best reactions...
