Dublin's St Patrick's Day Parade has been cancelled.
It's the second year in a row that the covid-19 pandemic has forced organisers to call the event off.
Instead, a virtual parade will take place online this year.
St. Patrick’s Festival returns from March 12 to 17 with six great virtual days and nights of online events! See our full statement and sign up for news and updates at https://t.co/AIawjx4TQ0 #stpatricksfestival pic.twitter.com/CYvvt9GgqT
