PICTURE SLIDESHOW: Darkness Into Light run in aid of Pieta House

MORE than 6,000 people took part in suicide charity Pieta House’s annual Darkness into Light walk in Limerick recently.

The fourth year the walk has taken place in Limerick, the number of people donning yellow t-shirts for the event has grown three-fold in just one year.

People of all ages descended on the stadium in the middle of a wet and rainy night, with all proceeds going to Pieta House’s support centre in Mungret.

The trek is symbolic, as it represents the walk from the darkness of depression, to the dawn of light, and wellness.

Pieta House fundraiser Kieran O’Brien admitted he was on “cloud nine” - and targeted 12,000 people at next year’s event.

The attendance in Limerick was only a few hundred behind that in Dublin.

Photographer Kieran Clancy was on hand to take pictures of the event, which have been assembled into this slideshow for readers to enjoy.
