The country's first Irish-language music festival, due to take place next month, has been cancelled.

Ravelóid, which was planned for June in Ardgillan Castle in Balbriggan, Co Dublin, was shelved due to "a number of production problems".

Festival organisers said they took the decision with "great reluctance", and thanked all those who supported the event.

They added that ticket-holders will receive full refunds in the coming week, and the festival board will try to arrange an alternative date soon.

They also thanked the public, and said that recent interest had "proven that there is a strong demand for a contemporary Irish language music festival".

Delorentos, The Riptide Movement and Ham Sandwich were among the line-up.
