‘St. Brigid’s Day’ Holiday to Boost Tourism

The Government is working on a proposal to have a ‘Double Bank Holiday" for St Patrick's Day this year and a new Bank Holiday for St Brigid’s Day on 1 February 2023, according to the Tánaiste.Brigid
The extra holidays would present the hospitality industry with a welcome opportunity to boost revenue, and it would also enable the Tourism sector to promote visits to Ireland.
Leo Varadkar said the purpose of the day would be to remember all of those who died during the Covid-19 pandemic and to recognise frontline workers.

Speaking on RTÉ’s News at One, Mr Varadkar said the Government aims for the St Brigid’s Day bank holiday to be permanent and to take effect in 2023.
‘It just seems that it's too early to make a decision on that, given that it (the pandemic) is not yet over’, he said.
Ireland currently has nine bank holidays a year, one of the lowest numbers in Europe.
