Darkness Into Light 2024

In 2009, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, 400 people set off on the inaugural Darkness Into Light 5km walk to raise funds for Pieta. From small beginnings, the movement has continued to grow, and now participation averages 120,000 people each year for Darkness Into Light in Ireland, with 200 official walks taking place across the world in 15 countries and 5 continents.

Electric Ireland is proud to support Pieta and Darkness Into Light for the twelfth year in a row and has made a commitment to work alongside Pieta to deliver this phenomenal event for another three years until and including 2025.

Everyone is welcome to join Electric Ireland and Pieta for the most important sunrise of the year, Darkness Into Light, on Saturday, May 11th. Take part in any way you can, whether that's walking, running, hiking, biking, or joining us at one of our organised gatherings.
