Shane to get up early for Darkness Into Light


Clare hurler, Shane O’Donnell, has teamed up with Electric Ireland and Pieta for Darkness Into Light which takes place on Saturday, May 11, 2024.
This annual event raises vital funds for Pieta’s lifesaving support services for those in suicidal distress and those who have been bereaved through suicide.
With over 100,000 participants expected to gather at 230 official walks in 14 countries and spanning four continents, Darkness into Light will once again bring communities together for the most important sunrise of the year.
Pieta offers a number of critical services including a 24-hour Crisis Helpline, which is a vital frontline support for anyone in suicidal distress. It is manned by fully qualified therapists, and it is open 24 hours a day seven days a week. Every year, the Pieta Crisis Helpline receives nearly 100,000 calls and texts. That is almost 300 calls and texts per day.
It also offers a Suicide Bereavement Liaison Service. This unique Pieta service offers practical and emotional support to families in the immediate aftermath of a loss to suicide.
People can sign up to take part in this year’s event at darknessintolight.ie.
