Moscow authorities canceled the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade amid concerns over its impact on the city's chronic traffic problems.

Irish Ambassador to Russia Philip McDonagh said instead of the parade, started by former mayor Yury Luzhkov in 1992, an indoor concert was being held on Sunday, March 20, which would feature Irish piano virtuoso Miceal O'Rourke, the Irish Times reported.

"This event, of which the city of Moscow is joint patron, replaces the parade - an experiment we are trying this year in view of the cold weather and the priority that is being given at present to resolving Moscow's traffic problems," McDonagh was quoted by the Irish Times as saying.
