The June Bank Holiday, observed on the first Monday of June, was formerly a separate holiday known as Whit Monday, also known as Pentecost Monday. This year’s date is June 5. Whit Monday is celebrated on the Monday following Pentecost Sunday, also known as Whitsunday. Pentecost commemorates the time when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples of Christ, signalling the conclusion of the Easter season. While Ireland was still a part of the United Kingdom, Whit Monday was declared a public holiday. Northern Ireland is the only portion of the United Kingdom still in existence. Because Easter is a religious festival, the Irish have traditionally observed it by engaging in religious activities.

The background of June Bank Holiday

In 1974, June Bank Holiday became an official national holiday. Whit Monday, also known as Pentecost Monday, is the origin of this holiday, which was initially designated a public holiday in Ireland by the “Bank Holidays Act 1871,” when Ireland was still a part of the United Kingdom.

This year, Whit Sunday occurs on the sixth Sunday after Easter, indicating that while Easter’s date shifts throughout the year, Whit Monday’s date does not. It was determined that this holiday should be observed more often in the future. In 1974, the “Holidays (Employees) Act of 1973” transferred the holiday to the first Monday in June, and the following year, the holiday was renamed the First Monday in June. In the United Kingdom, a similar modification was made, except the last Monday of May was selected.

Typically, the first Monday of June is a calm day in the public sphere. Many enterprises and organisations, including banks and post offices, close their doors. In contrast, stores and pubs are frequently open, although they may open or close later or earlier than usual due to the holiday. The schedules of public transport services differ based on one’s residence and intended travel destination. The festivities celebrated throughout the day by the Irish are no longer religious and have become predominantly secular. Even though Ireland’s June Bank Holiday is an annual event, it is always observed on the first Monday of June.
