Your Guide to the 2016 June BH Weekend

The June Bank Holiday is just a few days away - how did that sneak up so quickly?! We're all looking forward to the day off to spend some time in the Irish sun (we hope so anyway!) and kick of the summer season the right way: with a weekend full of live music! All of us in the office are headed off to a handful of festivals this weekend... except for Conor who's off in the south of France and we're not jealous at all.
