In Ireland, the October Holiday (sometimes called the October Bank Holiday, Irish: Lá Saoire i Mí Dheireadh Fómhair or Lá Saoire Oíche Shamhna) is observed on the last Monday of October.[1] Usually, but not always, this is the day after the end of Western European Summer Time. It was introduced in 1977.[2]
