About this project
This year, Darkness Into Light, supported by Electric Ireland, took place in nearly 120 venues in Ireland and across the world. Over 130,000 were inspired to get out of bed at 4am on a Saturday, May 7th to walk together to symbolise hope and spread awareness of suicide.
Coverage included over 20 pieces in national print media including features in the Irish Independent and the Irish Examiner. Broadcast media included the Marian Finucane Show on RTÉ, the Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk and TV3’s Ireland AM. RTÉ’s Six One and Nine O’Clock News featured the event from the Phoenix Park. Darkness Into Light was also featured online in a range of sites from Irishtimes.com to Joe.ie in the lead up to, during and after the event.
