There's calls for a new bank holiday on the Late Late Toy Show weekend.

Fianna Fáil senator Fiona O'Loughlin says the last Friday in November is an institution for children and families with the airing of the annual Late Late Toy Show.

"Every year, all of us look forward to the last Friday in November.

"The Late Late Toy Show is an institution for children of all ages and has played a big part in Christmas for many years now.

"For so many, it is the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year.

"I feel it deserves to be recognised as a festive stand out in the lead up to Christmas.

"To recognise its significance in this regard, and to help children up and down the country prepare for the big night, I think it would be a tree-mendous idea to give them a dedicated bank holiday on that day."

Talks are ongoing within Government for a new bank holiday to thank frontline workers for their efforts with a date around the 1st of February being suggested.
