Darkness into Light 2017

Sara Gahan

Darkness into Light is Pieta House's annual fundraising and awareness event that will take place Saturday, May 6, at 4.15 a.m. around County Wexford.

The event helps to promote suicide prevention and to tackle the stigma that leads people to the doors of Pieta House centres. The charity provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress.

Over 16,000 people are expected to take part this year with Wexford Town and New Ross joining in on the national event for the first time with Enniscorthy and Courtown.

Participants in Wexford Town will meet at St Joseph's Community Centre, towards White Mill Road, by Woodie's, onto Clonard Road, continuing on Summerhill Road, going by St Aidan's SuperValu and back to St Joseph's Community Centre.

Courtown will meet at Flanagan's Wharf 30 minutes prior to starting time, go along the R742, Red Row Road, by Pirates Cove and back to the start at Flanagan's Wharf.

Everyone for the New Ross walk will meet at The Apex, Bosheen with Enniscorthy all meeting in the Shamrocks GAA Club.
