The Scarefest parade in Carlow Town for Halloween has been cancelled but the Witch Trial is to go ahead, it has been revealed. 

In a statement, organisers said: "We are sad to announce the cancellation of our Halloween Parade the "Day of the Dead" due to bad weather forecast for this evening [Thursday].

"However the Witch Trial will still go ahead inside the Courthouse as planned. Just a small amount of tickets for this left for this event."
