Cork City Council has said GLOW, the popular Christmas installation in Bishop Lucey Park, will be 'reimagined' this year in light of Covid-19. 

In a statement, Cork City Council said planning is currently underway for Cork city’s Christmas celebrations.

"GLOW will be reimagined taking into consideration government guidelines around Covid-19. 

"We are currently tendering for a Creative Team to develop an artistic festive installation trail through Cork City Centre and separately a site-specific outdoor festive lighting installation," the council said. 

The statement comes as this evening Professor Pete Lunn, founder and head of the ESRI’s Behavioural Research Unit, told people that "now is the time to plan for the winter months ahead".

"Plan for the milestones; such as Halloween, Christmas and New Years Eve within a Covid-19 environment. 

"Be innovative in how you can celebrate safely with loved ones," he said, speaking at the Department of Health press briefing.

"Choose your close network of social visitors this winter and prioritise members of your family or friends who may be more isolated," Professor Lunn continued.
