’tis the Friday before Christmas. The night that, traditionally, heralds the biggest consumption of alcohol in the whole year.

Intake of alcohol is expected to rise by about 114% tonight, compared with any average Friday.

In 2013, Irish people consumed 38 million litres of pure alcohol, with beer being the most popular alcoholic drink, followed by wine, spirits and cider.

Whatever you do, enjoy alcohol sensibly.
