HERE COMES SUMMER.. As another Norn Iron season of rain and shine arrives Harp gets ready to celebrate.

HERE comes the sun! Or does it? In Northern Ireland it seems it doesn't matter.

Regardless of losing an hour and with or without the sun, Harp lager is celebrating the clocks springing forward to BST.

The much loved local lager brand today kick started the countdown to summer by issuing a tribute to a 'Norn Iron' summer penned by local actor, director and playwright Dan Gordon and the Harp Angel.

From wearing shorts in the cold to barbequing in the rain, the 'Give My Head Peace' star and the Harp Angel pay tribute to the brilliant and uniquely Northern Irish approach to our sometimes, less than appealing summer time.

Renowned for his portrayal of archetypical Northern Irish personalities in TV and stage productions, Dan Gordon said: "The Ode is simply our way of having a laugh at what summe r means in Northern Ireland and how the average Harp drinker adapts his take on summer to make sure it's the best possible one for him and his mates; ignore the rain, enjoy the 'sun' - or lack of it, a 'poke' in the cold. You've heard of an Indian Summer, well here's the Northern Irish version..."

Drink responsibly. Visit for the facts.
