    There are a small number of Mondays during the year that are national holidays from work. Because banks don't open they are called bank holidays. Most people do not work on these days.

    Don't work it as it's usually slow for business.

    Not entirely true, there are 9 Bank Holidays in a year which is exactly what it means, the banks are closed on those days. We have 8 Public Holidays where everyone is entitled to have the day off or compensated in some way if they have to work it. These 8 days are all on the same days as the Bank Holidays except Good Friday.

    I will do the decent thing and pay the ultimate price for making such a gross error, which has brought shame on me, my family, nay, the Irish nation.
