It may be Monday, but this week is a short working week. Oh, and next week is a short working week. Thanks to Jesus' resurrection not only do you get to scoff chocolate eggs, but you could manage to squeeze extra holidays out of work.
One travel search engine points out that "with the perfect alignment of bank holidays, Irish workers can take nearly 3 weeks off work for just nine days annual leave". Those lucky enough to get in before their colleagues and book themselves some time off during the sweet spot between April 18th to 28th could potentially earn themselves a 17-day break from work.
With Good Friday falling on April 14, followed by Easter Monday on April 17 and the May Day bank holiday on May 1, Irish employees could take almost a 3-week holiday while using up just nine days of holidays.
