Galway 2020 has announced the cancellation of this evening's Opening Ceremony in Galway city, due to the severe weather warnings.

In the interests of public safety, the event has been deemed unsafe to go ahead.

President Michael D Higgins was due to launch the event this evening at South Park, to mark the start of Galway's year as European Capital of Culture.

Organisers say they're very disappointed at having to cancel the ceremony, particularly for the community cast, volunteers and the team who have worked so hard during the last weeks and months, but the weather warnings currently in place mean it has been deemed unsafe to go ahead.
