Dear colleagues,
In the past weeks we have been monitoring the situation with the coronavirus crisis in Ireland and with our European colleagues.

It is with deep regret that I inform you, in agreement with TG4, the host member, about the postponement of CIRCOM Regional Annual Conference that was scheduled on 28 and 29 May in Galway.
We will give further information in due time on how this will be managed, including the workshop that we use to hold around the Conference, the Executive Committee and European Board meetings, the Annual Assembly and the Prix CIRCOM gala.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this postponement may cause to you.

Fernando Ojea
