What Date Is Father's Day On This Year In Ireland?
The date when Father's Day takes place differs from country to country, and can be on different dates, depending on how the calendar falls. However, in Ireland it always falls on the third Sunday of June. This year, Ireland's Father's Day will take place on the 18th of June, 2017 - not to be confused with Mother's Day, which was on April 26th, 2017.
While Father's Day is not officially considered to be a public holiday in Ireland, the fact that it takes place on a Sunday every year shows that it is still a much celebrated date as far as most families' calendars are concerned. Having it take place on Sunday means that most dads will have the day off work, which leaves them with a lot more time for celebrating the big occasion. Most families use the time off as an opportunity to spend some quality time with their dads and exchange cards and gifts
