Generously spray a casserole dish with non- stick cooking spray. Arrange slices of bread in a 9 X 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices in a casserole dish.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half cream, Baileys Irish Cream, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup. Then beat with a whisk until blended thoroughly.
Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk and egg mixture. Spoon some of the mixture in between the layers. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight (about 8 hours)
The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove from refrigerator, leave the foil on and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.
Sprinkle additional cinnamon and powdered sugar on top, top with dollops of whipped cream and add green sprinkles/sparkling sugar, if desired.
Serve with additional maple syrup.
