REGRETFULLY, the Covid-19 virus now governs public activity and some of what we do in private – the relentless washing of hands, for example.

Following Government and HSE new policies announced from 12noon today, there is a bar on indoor gatherings of more than 100, outdoor gatherings of more than 5,000 and musuems, galleries, arts centres and their like are closed.

Thus the May bank holiday weekend joy of Riverfest is posptoned.
