Darkness Into Light 2021

Electric Ireland is proud to support Pieta and Darkness Into Light for the ninth year and are urging people to sign up at to take part in a special Darkness Into Light Sunrise on May 8th. While there are no organised walks for Darkness Into Light due to Covid-19 restrictions, participants can walk, run, swim, hike, bike or simply share One Sunrise Together, a sunrise that can unite us whilst still physically apart. By taking part in Darkness Into Light, participants will help shine a light on suicide and self-harm while raising vital funds for Pieta’s lifesaving services, which are needed now more than ever.

Darkness Into Light Ambassadors

Share your sunrise note

Electric Ireland and Pieta are also encouraging the nation to take pen to paper to write their own Sunrise Note and share their stories of finding hope in the darkness online using #DIL2021. The concept of writing and sharing a heartfelt note will help normalise the challenges people have been facing this year, bringing people together through shared experiences of finding light in the darkness.

Our incredible ambassadors have kindly shared their sunrise notes above which detail how they have found light in the dark, especially over the last 12 months.
