Can my employer revoke previously approved vacation time?

Question Details: I am currently in Ireland and have worked remotely for my company in the US for 40 hours. The next 2 weeks are approved vacation days and I had intended to not work at all. My supervisor just asked what my plans are for next week. They know that I had planned to take it off but things have changed and now they may need me to work. I'm devastated. My family flew in from as far as Australia to spend next week together as a family in a vacation home. The last time we did this was 5 years ago and with my elderly parents we are fully aware this is very likely the last time we can do this. Do I have any options here or do I have to work if they tell me that I have to? Can they fire me if I tell them that I cannot work? I don;t even know if there's WiFi at this vacation home that will even allow me to work.
