Over two-thirds of families in Dublin will be missing family members on Christmas Day this year. 

Meanwhile, almost half of people in Dublin — 44 per cent — will be missing someone from their home this Christmas due to emigration.
These are among the findings of new research carried out by REDC for Aviva Home Insurance, which also found that for the majority of respondents from the capital (78%), spending time with family is the most important thing for them about Christmas. 

One in 10 respondents said they will be missing a close family member at home this Christmas because they have to work.
Irish rugby player and Garda officer Niamh Briggs is one of those who will be spending this Christmas away from home as she will be working for the third year out of the past six. 

Briggs has joined the call to nominate family members or loved ones who will be missing Christmas at home this year in Aviva’s Christmas Campaign.

Nominees will be in with a chance to win an early Christmas Day celebration, complete with all the trimmings in their home. Visit www.aviva.ie/becauseyoumakechristmas to enter details before Friday 25 November.

Briggs said: “My mum is a nurse and regularly had to work on Christmas Day when I was growing up, so when I became a Garda it was something I was well used to. 

“It’s not like a normal working day at work, we do have a bit of fun and generally the atmosphere is really nice but for me, Christmas is very much about being at home with family and the people I love, so we’ll definitely be having a replica Christmas dinner in the Briggs household once I have a day off.”
