Anyone tell me if Bank Of Ireland branches are open today?
Something to do with Jesus.
Jesus? Why do I keep hearing that name everytime I want or need to do something!
Banks have never opened on Good Friday.
why not? its a bit odd considering it's not a bank holiday
oh man, i remember when i was on my j1 in ny i was absolutely skint one week, rang home begging for some money. my dad was like, ill wire you the money on tues, tomorrows a bank holiday. i genuinely asked him if the banks were really closed that day.
nor is it a public holiday.
I dunno - seems to be a traditional thing.
When I was a young lad Good Friday was next to Christmas Day for places being shut. The only place open might be the odd corner shop or garage - everywhere else shut down. Things have changed since then but the banks remain closed.
We got the day off from the mine when I were a lad.
