The organisers of the St Patrick's Festival have confirmed there will be no parade in Dublin this year.
Instead, events will be broadcast through a festival TV channel called 'SPF TV'.
This online channel will also be accessible globally.
The festival will run from March 12th to 17th inclusive and include artists, musicians, performers, makers, creators, arts and live events workers.
In a statement, organisers say: "While we cannot gather on the streets for the St Patrick’s Festival Parade this March 17th, we are reimagining how we bring to life the heart and soul of the national parade, through spectacle, marching bands, pageantry and ceremony, inviting our audiences to participate virtually and enjoy safely from their homes until we can come together again."
Parades at home and abroad were also cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However other initiatives, such as the 'Global Greening', went ahead.
It saw over 400 buildings and tourists sites be green for one day.
It started with the Sydney Opera House over a decade ago, and is now seen as one of Ireland's great international promotions.
