Darkness into Light is an annual and significant fundraising event for Pieta House, a charity that focuses on suicide intervention and prevention. Pieta House is a life-saver for thousands of Irish people.
The event commences at 4.15am on Saturday morning, May 11th, and based on experiences over the past few years, it is expected not to exceed one-and-a-half hours. Between 2,000 and 3,000 participants are expected and parking is not permitted in any of the estates located along the Grange Road. Volunteers will be on hand to direct parking and entry to Marlay Park.
Entries sell out very quickly for this venue so register now and support Pieta House.
Since Darkness Into Light began, dedicated supporters have helped raise almost €20 million, which has enabled Pieta House to keep its doors and 24/7 helpline open for people in crisis, free of charge. Since 2012, when their first international event took place in London, their international charity partners have benefited from an investment of €3 million in local mental health support services.

In Sept 2016 Fr. Fidelis and Fr. Christopher arrived to our Parish from their homeland in Nigeria. Whilst it took them some time to adjust to our lovely Irish weather.... they were very quick to settle into life in the Meadowbrook Parish. Both Priests will leave us in August and will be missed by members of all 3 Parishes - Ballinteer, Dundrum and Meadowbrook. They maybe leaving us for now but they will always be welcome to what they will remember as their second home. Slan leat agus go raibh mile maith agat.
