The largest celebration of Irish-American culture in the United States is being postponed until next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Dublin city officials say the annual Irish Festival will not be held for the first time since the late 1980s. The three-day event features live music from over 60 acts and more than 500 performers and vendors.  The city is also looking at proposals to open the recreation center, pool, and summer camps in June and July.
