Ireland's first Irish-language festival has been postponed.

Ravelóid was scheduled  to take place in Ardgillan Castle in Balbriggan on June 10 and 11, with acts like Delorentos, Seo Linn, The Riptide Movement, Kíla, Ham Sandwich, Mundy, Dublin Gospel Choir, Heathers and more set to play.

In a statement released today, festival organisers said it was postponed "due to a number of production factors".

The festival will not take place in 2016.

"The goodwill shown to Ravelóid among the general public, especially over the last few weeks, both nationally and internationally, has proven that there is a strong demand for a contemporary Irish language music festival," they said.

"The Board will be working in the coming months on an alternative date."

Those who purchased tickets will receive a full refund in the coming weeks.
