Due to take place tomorrow evening, Saturday, March 3, the Rehab People of the Year Awards have been postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

The 43rd People of the Year awards, which was scheduled to take place at the Mansion House, has been postponed due to the unprecedented weather event. The awards were due to be broadcast live on RTÉ One at 9:45pm.

In a statement issued by the organisers on Friday, they said: "This decision has been taken in the interest of the safety of our winners and guests and in light of the widespread cancellation of public transportation due to the Red Weather Alert.

"Rehab and RTÉ are fully committed to running this event at another time and are currently working on finding a new date for the show which will be announced shortly.

"We apologise to our winners and guests for any inconvenience caused and look forward to announcing our new date."
