The identity of Pint Baby has been revealed as 20-year-old Steven Barron from Kildare

A clip from an archived episode of RTE's Nationwide became a massive hit on social media at the weekend and turned an oblivious bystander into an overnight sensation.

The Nationwide clip, which was shared by RTE journalist Cian McCormack to Facebook, shows a bar in Ennistymon County Clare, in which a small baby sits at the bar with what appears to be a pint of Guinness in his tiny baby hands.

Steven's mother Caroline said she was notified that the video was doing the rounds again when a friend in America tagged her in it on Facebook.

"I got tagged in it on Facebook from my friend in America asking if it was me and Steven and sure enough it was. Twenty years later there it is," she said.
