Aengus O'Snodaigh has suggested that the 24th of April would be permanently enshrined as "Republic Day", but given the State holds its commemoration every Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday is already a bank holiday, this appears to be duplication. But what other days could be equally worthy of national celebration? Suggestions:
1. January 21st - Anniversary of Opening of First Dáil.
2. June 16th - Bloomsday
3. Second Monday in September - equidistant between both All-Ireland finals, no bank holiday already that month.
