The Cabinet Sub-Committee dealing with the Coronavirus has just announced the decision to cancel the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin.
So far, no change has been announced concerning the Limerick parade.
Yesterday, Health Minister, Simon Harris said that any decisions to cancel events or decisions about dealing with the Coronavirus would be taken on the advice of health experts and not in light of party politics.
The Cork parade is the second largest in the country with up to 2,000 people taking part and can attract up to 50,000 onlookers.
Opposition party leaders were this afternoon meeting the Taoiseach in Government Buildings.
