Electric Ireland has been the proud title sponsor of Pieta House’s flagship fundraising event, Darkness Into Light, since 2013.

In 2015, over 500 people lost their lives to suicide in Ireland. Electric Ireland understands the importance of Darkness Into Light which gives people the opportunity to talk about the topic of suicide.

Darkness into Light is Pieta House’s annual awareness and fundraising event and is the most vital component of Pieta House’s fundraising calendar.

The first Darkness Into Light event was held in the Phoenix Park, Dublin in 2009 with just over 400 participants.

This year’s event is set to be the biggest yet with an estimated 120,000 participants, in almost 120 locations around the globe, preparing for the May 7th 5km walk.

With just over a week to go, Electric Ireland and Pieta House urge the public to get involved.
