The delegation from Mayo County Council due to travel to New York and Philadelphia for St Patricks Day events have decided not to travel.
The decision was taken this morning.
The Cathaoirleach Brendan Mulroy and Chief Executive Peter Hynes conveyed their apologies to the Mayo Associations in both Cities.
They say it is disappointing that the long tradition cannot be fulfilled in this instance but circumstances dictate a prudent and precautionary approach.
Mayo County Council looks forward to future opportunities to reinforce the connection with our Diaspora in the United States when the current Corona Virus crisis has been brought under control
