Darkness into Light

Thousands of people across the country took part in the annual Darkness into Light predawn walk on Saturday morning and Nenagh College students and staff were among them. They set off in darkness from The Scouts Hall at 4.15, finishing the 5km walk as dawn was breaking, to symbolise hope for those in distress or who have been bereaved.
Official walks took place at some 230 locations in Ireland and abroad this year. The first Darkness into Light took place in the Phoenix Park in Dublin in 2009, when some 400 walkers took part in a 5km in aid of Pieta. The organisation expected more than 100,000 participants to take part in Saturday morning’s events.
