As much as we might want to reconnect with parents, siblings and extended family over the festive season, let’s face it, the real craic comes on St Stephen’s Day. That’s the day we get to spend with our chosen family – our best mates and lifelong friends.

The pressure of Christmas is gone, the fridge is full of leftovers and there’s wall-to-wall sport on the telly. It doesn’t get much better than catching up with mates you haven’t seen in a while for banter and laughter over a friendly pint or two.

And with the pubs back open, it certainly is the most wonderful time for a beer, which is why Rockshore have appointed themselves unofficial sponsors of St Stephen’s Day, drafting Boyzone’s Ronan Keating for what is sure to be the song of the season.

This duet with Rockó is full of the kind of playful slagging we can all expect to give – and receive – while enjoying our time with those people who really do know us best. Who else would know about those questionable dance moves from 20 years ago?

This Christmas, make the most of St Stephen’s Day with your real nearest and dearest over a pint of Rockshore.
