St Patrick's Day celebrations postponed
9 Mar 2020
Following the cancellation of a number of St Patrick’s Day celebrations across Ireland, Members of Belfast City Council have taken a precautionary decision to postpone its annual St Patrick’s Day parade and concert, given the fact that this is due to take place next week.
Lord Mayor of Belfast Councillor Daniel Baker said: “Our St Patrick’s Day celebrations are always hugely anticipated and a great day out for people right across the city, so it’s obviously very disappointing that this year’s event won’t go ahead as planned.
“The decision to postpone this year’s event has been taken as a precaution, given Members’ and the public’s concern around coronavirus.”
