A popular West Cork Christmas event has been cancelled due to concerns regarding Covid-19.
The Ballydehob Christmas Craft & Food Fair announced it would not run this year on Facebook, citing Covid concerns as the main reason.
Posting on Facebook the event committee said: “Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the sharp rise in the number of people infected and for the safety of all those involved, both stallholders and the public, this year’s Ballydehob Craft & Food Fair has been cancelled.”
The Ballydehob Community Hall Committee felt, given the rising infection numbers, the present regulations, and the uncertainty of what other regulations may be imposed, but most importantly for the safety of both the stallholders and the public at large that the wise decision was to cancel the Fair.
The committee said:
Ballydehob Community Hall is managed by a voluntary committee of local people for the benefit of the community. The community hall has a charity shop that is open to the public Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am to 4pm.
