Maybe it’s a Donegal thing because they’re so close to the border?
My missus is also from up there and calls It ‘Boxing Day’.
Although her excuse is that her Da grew up in London
We also had 4 tv channels due to the proximity to the completely illegal community placed tv mast in inishowen as opposed to the southern 2.

My Dad was part of the team that built the illegal receiver on the hill behind our house. He had us stomping barefoot in the boggy mud to get enough water to mix the cement. It was November. It was freezing.

Worth it to be able to watch top of the pops though.

i find it difficult not to say Boxing Day because that's what it was called in the radio times.
