An anti-racism protest planned for Dublin next Monday has been cancelled over fears the organisers could face prosecution.
Concerns were raised after a protest in Dublin on Monday was attended by thousands of people, making social distancing impossible.
The demonstrations were organised following the death of George Floyd in America.
A number of other protests are still currently scheduled to go ahead in Dublin and across the country over the weekend.
However, the organisers of a Black Lives Matter solidarity protest planned for outside the US Embassy next Monday say they have been forced to cancel the protest.
Organisers said: "An Garda Siochana have not threatened or in any way attempted to intimidate the organisers.
"However, a number of safety concerns and potential criminal offenses surrounding the protest were raised and we have elected to cancel with the possibility of rescheduling."
The organisers of a separate march planned in the capital on Saturday have today said they're still planning to hold a demonstration outside the Embassy.
They're urging anyone attending to wear face masks and to abide by the two metre social distancing guidelines.

Earlier, Health Minister Simon Harris said protests are too dangerous in the current climate.
He observed: "I abhor racism - it makes me feel physically sick to the pit of my stomach, and I think the overwhelming majority of people in this country abhor racism.
"That doesn't mean we can ignore mass gathering guidelines - the reality of the situation is, regardless of your cause or how just the cause is, mass gatherings are dangerous at the moment."
