The Tree of Light ceremony in Killarney tomorrow night has been cancelled due to the weather warning.

The tree is located on the grounds of St Mary’s Cathedral and is fitted with up to 3,000 lightweight, energy efficient bulbs.

The lights will now be switched on this evening after mass, but with no ceremony.

There is currently no date set for a rescheduled ceremony.
