Viewers of the RTE Late Late Show praise Keith Earls after a ‘powerful’ interview


RTE Late Show viewers praised Irish rugby star Keith Earls after his ‘brave’ interview on tonight’s show.

The winger of Munster and Ireland was on the show for the first time tonight together with host Ryan Tubridi as he went through the challenges he faced during his growing up and during his extensive career.

Earls explained his upbringing in Moiross, including witnessing a shooting as a young man and how he experienced his first panic attack at the age of 12.

The 34-year-old, on the other hand, opened up to his personality he called ‘Hank’, presenting negative thoughts and anxiety in his mind.

Earls’ struggles led him to seek professional help while he was part of the Irish organization in 2013, and he was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and has been working on managing the disorder in recent years.

But Moiross’s man has sent a message to others who are suffering and hopes his story will help some in a similar position.

Viewers went to social networks to praise the rugby star.

“Keith Earls is an inspiration, a fantastic person,” said one viewer.

Another added: “Very powerful and honest from Keith Earls. He’s a really classy actor.”

“An amazing interview with Keith Earls. Fair plays for him by sharing his story,” said one.

“What a brave man, who shows that the stigma around BiPolar 1 and 2 – and even makes a difference between them – is misplaced! An example as a person, but also as a sports superstar,” said one.

Earls has been named into the Reds for tomorrow’s interprovincial derby against Connacht, which is a particularly emotional opportunity for Munster as they pay tribute to the late Anthony Foley.

Marking the fifth anniversary since the legend of Munster passed away, Peter O’Mahony is the captain on his 150th appearance with the Earls who are in the center.

Earls has earned 93 appearances in Ireland and will be available to Andy Farrell for the upcoming November Internationals and Sik Nations 2022 following the signing of a new IRFU contract earlier this year.

The agreement means that the 34-year-old veteran will stay in Munster at least until June next year.
