Sorry folks, we're not.

Sinn Féin's bill to create a new Bank Holiday to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Easter Rising on 24th April was rejected today in the Dáil.

The government yesterday announced plans to spend €50 million for the commemorations of the Rising, but today turned down the chance to make it a public holiday by a vote of 82 to 37.

Riot? Anyone for a riot?
