THE Kerry launch of Darkness Into Light took place at Tralee Bay Wetlands on Tuesday night.

The launch was kicked off with a few words from Pieta House Chief Clinical Officer, Cindy O’Connor, where she thanked everyone for supporting Pieta House.

The guests were then invited to release lighting ‘lanterns of hope’ into the water at the Wetlands centre.

Darkness Into Light is Pieta House’s signature awareness event in the movement against suicide. The 5km walk/runs will take place in Tralee, Listowel, Killarney, Kenmare, Dingle, Cahersiveen and Caherdaniel.

The Tralee event, supported by Electric Ireland, will begin in darkness at 4.15am from CBS The Green on Saturday morning, May 6, and ends just as the sun begins to rise.

Thousands took part in last year’s event, raising over €45,000. The event will take place in over 150 locations in Ireland and across the world.
