“Ah Brother how I miss you 14 years passed and it’s like you’re still here because of the music,” he wrote on social media.

“I just imagine you are still in north london loving life Hanging with Phil the butcher and pat the baker. I do wonder what you would make of it all today.

“You had such a definite idea of what we are,who we are and when someone was a total waffler. Love ya Pal miss ya every day.”

Stephen sadly lost his life from a heart condition while at his holiday home in Majorca in 2009 at the age of 33.

Stephen, Ronan, Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch rose to fame in Boyzone in the 1990s. The lads continued on as a four-piece after Stephen’s death.

The group continued as a four-piece and released a farewell album, Thank You & Goodnight, in 2018. It featured a song in tribute to Gately, a reworking of a demo he recorded in 2002 featuring his vocals.
