Important Information

  • Due to the unprecedented level of support for Darkness Into Light this year, we have almost exhausted our supplies of T-shirts at venues across Ireland. We apologise to everyone who won't receive one in time for the walk, and if you have a T-shirt from previous years please feel free to wear it! We will be making provisions to have a 2017 T-shirt available for every registered participant as a keepsake should they wish to receive one after the event, and will post further details on this next week. Thank you all for your continued support. Our work could not continue without you and we are eternally grateful to see this movement grow and grow - even if it runs away from us a little bit sometimes!
  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the start time. Please allow time for parking.
  • Each participant must have a torch for health and safety reasons.
  • There will be no storage for personal items during the event, so please come ready to walk/run.
  • Please respect traffic wardens and event signage, and follow instructions on arrival. Help us keep our venues clean and place any litter in bins provided.

After the walk, why not continue the chat over a cuppa! Thanks to the following who will be open after the walk
O'Briens (at TESCO)
The Brewery Coffee House
The Coffee Mill
The Gatehouse Restaurant
The Glenroyal Hotel
