The Garda statement reads: "Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, Borris Fair will not be taking place this year (2021). We are encouraging people not to turn up in Borris, Co. Carlow.

"Hopefully next year will see a return to normal, when we can all gather together again. #HereToHelp #SocialDistancing"

The Fair usually attracts thousands of visitors to the village including many from County Kilkenny and is normally held on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption.

This is the second successive year that the event has been cancelled in line with public health advice.
