The annual national seafarers' remembrance ceremony in Dublin has been cancelled.

The City Quay Seafarers Memorial Service Organising Committee, consisting of the Maritime Institute of Ireland, Stella Maris Seafarers Centre and Dublin Port Company, announced that, due to the current Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions, the Annual Wreath Laying Service at the City Quay Seafarers Memorial "is regretfully cancelled for 2020."

"Last year's well-attended commemoration showed that interest in this annual memorial event remains strong which is heartening indeed. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to convene once again next year to honour and preserve the memory of seafarers lost at sea in peacetime and in war aboard Irish merchant ships and fishing vessels," the organisers said in a statement.
