We are planning for a new bank holiday this year in the Boyne Valley. Named after St Brigid, the female patron saint of Ireland, the public holiday is the first Monday in February, except where St Brigid's day (1st of February) happens to fall on a Friday, in which case that Friday 1 February will be a public holiday. This year, the bank holiday will fall on Monday the 6th of February.
