The Rose of Tralee festival has been canceled.
It's the second consecutive year that the pandemic has forced its cancellation.
Organizers say they had been trying to work on a way to safely deliver some, or all, of the festival events at home and abroad.
They say it's "immensely disappointing" that the event must be cancelled for two years in a row.
Anthony O'Gara, Rose of Tralee International Festival CEO says "Sadly, the timeframe envisaged to safely steer our communities out of this pandemic, and our responsibility to positively support those efforts, mean that we will not be able to have a Festival again this year."
In a statement, he said it "is immensely disappointing for all of us involved.”
However, organisers say they are looking forward to celebrating the festival in August 2022.
