THOUSANDS of people are expected to take to the streets of Limerick during the early hours of this Saturday morning as the 2018 Darkness into Light walk aims to reflect on those lost to suicide.

With upwards of 10,000 people expected to descend on Thomond Park from 4.15am, this year’s walk will see an additional feature of a “kilometre of reflection” in the Pieta House national fundraiser.

For the ninth year, the five kilometre route will bring crowds around the city as walkers emerge from the darkness of night into a dawn light and include a one kilometre candlelit stretch from Fernhill along O’Callaghan’s Strand to create a period of reflection where walkers will remember those lost to suicide.

Other venues outside of Limerick City include Kilmallock, Murroe and Newcastle West and nearby in Shannon, Killaloe, Sixmilebridge and Nenagh.

Limerick Pieta House can be contacted 061 484444 for anyone in distress.
