Notice from the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) in relation to COVID-19

March 12, 2020

Following government recommendations in response to the spread of the coronavirus, the Irish Music Rights Organisation has put provisions in place to carry out business as usual for members, customers and affiliated societies worldwide.

While we intend to work as normal, some services may be restricted temporarily. With this in mind, we would appreciate patience from customers, members and affiliated societies now and in the coming weeks.

IMRO will not be hosting any member events until further notice and we ask for the time being that customers and members do not visit the IMRO offices.

The Irish government has recommended that indoor gatherings of more than 100 people and outdoor gatherings of more than 500 people be cancelled. IMRO supports the decision in the best interests of public health.

We understand that this is difficult for music fans who have bought tickets and for the bands, artists and crew who have spent months preparing for gigs and concerts. However, the safety and well-being of fans, musicians, crews, and the wider public must be protected.

At IMRO, we believe music matters. We cherish creativity, protecting and promoting music, not just for the benefit of music creators, but for the benefit of who we are as a society. Decisions like this are not easy, and we hope that fans will support music creators in the coming months as gigs are rescheduled.

Look after yourselves, family and friends and especially those most vulnerable. Thank you all for your forbearance during this challenging time.
