Hi, I enquired about this previously to the Dept of Ed and was advised that closure for holy days is at the discretion of each school. The schools have to be open for 183 days so if they close for a holy day this means that they may have to reduce closures at other times. Hope that answers your question.

Can someone let me know whether primary national schools close for church holidays? I recall that they used to but gather they no longer do?
