  • Patrick's Day parade and other events canceled due to coronavirus Matt Holzapfel

St Patrick's Day parades and events at home and overseas are not going ahead because of restrictions imposed to try to contain the coronavirus pandemic.

Ireland's streets are usually packed with parade-goers, participants, onlookers, locals and tourists alike but today those same streets will be quiet and mostly empty.

In response to the COVID-19 virus, the organisers of Birmingham's St Patrick's Day parade have made the decision to postpone the parade, and hope to "deliver a world-class festival experience that Birmingham and the United Kingdom expect and deserve" later in the year instead.

Tourism Ireland's annual Global Greening project is still going ahead, with hundreds of landmarks and sites in over 50 countries going green including the London Eye, the Sydney Opera House and, Madison Square Garden in NY.
