On my holliers (in Ireland)

I do regular searches of the Internet for items relating to the surnames Hollyer, Holyer and Hollier. Recently, I have noted a large number of curious references to 'holliers'. Closer examination shows that this word is Irish slang for holidays. I learn something new every day. I can't wait to go 'on my holliers'.
