« BackDarkness Into Light walk to be held in Tralee in May

Tralee has been included in the list of Kerry towns to host a ‘Darkness into light’ event next May.

The fundraising walk, held each year in aid of Pieta House, has previously been held in Killarney, Dingle and Listowel.


The idea is that participants leave their starting point in darkness, and complete the walk as the sun rises.

It’s been a huge success over the past number of years, with thousands of people taking part in Kerry.

The Tralee walk will begin at 4.15am on May 7 with more details to be finalised in the coming weeks.

Pieta House opened in Tralee in 2015 and offers support to people suffering with suicidal thoughts or self-harming issues.
