Denis - I left the fair village of Muff, Co. Donegal in September 2013. I haven’t been home since last Christmas, not that long but it’s long enough for me! I left because I got a visa to work in Canada and it was time for a change.

Q - What’s your favourite memory of Christmas in Derry/Donegal?

Denis - There are so many great memories of Christmas but one of my favourite memory is probably in 2010 when we had the bad winter (mild compared to Canada’s). It was also my 21st birthday that Christmas so I’ve lots of fantastic memories with friends and family.

Q - How different is Christmas in Canada to Christmas in Derry?

Denis - Christmas in Canada is colder... Much colder! Also in Canada a white Christmas is a promise.

Q - Who will be coming home with you?

Denis - I don’t have anyone coming for Christmas but I’ve a wee Canadian lassie coming for New Year’s and it will be a first in Europe for her!

Q - What are you looking forward to the most when you come?

Denis - A decent pint of Guinness, Daniel Doherty’s bread toasted, a proper fry and of course seeing all of my family and friends.

Q - How will you spend Christmas in Donegal and how long will you be here for?

Denis - Not sure how long I will be home for. I think I’ll be around for a month or two at least.
