We are delighted to welcome everyone to Murroe for the Pieta House Darkness into Light walk at 4.15am on Saturday, 12th May. Please join us afterwards for refreshments at the hall. The Memory board will be outside the forge, and you are encouraged to add your own personal message.
There will be no money collected on the night – you must register on line at www.pieta.ie, with Murroe as the venue.
Silent kilometre, where you are asked to walk in silence, will be from the back gate of Glenstal Abbey for 1km. It will be clearly marked.
Traffic and Diversions: We ask that participants car pool as much as possible. Stewards will be directing traffic, so please follow their instructions. The road from the Five Roads-Glenstal Abbey-Muintir na Tíre hall will be closed from 3-5am, except for local traffic. The route from the Monument to the back gate of Glenstal will be very restricted from 4.15-5am, with diversions in place.
Before the walk starts, Glenstal School Choir will entertain the crowd, so if you are walking, plan to be there before 4am.
First aid will be provided by East Limerick Red Cross. If you need to contact them during the walk, please talk to any steward or helper who will be able to guide you.
Children are very welcome to come on the walk with their parents. For safety reasons we advise families to stay at the back or side of the walking crowd.
Running is not encouraged. The motorbike leading the walk will stay with walkers on the route.
People can bring dogs on leads. Anyone with dogs should be at the very back of the walkers as the walk starts.
Rubbish bags will be provided outside the hall.
Toilets will be open at the Muintir na Tíre hall and at the GAA pitch.
We want to thank everyone for their support, especially our sponsors, whose names will be listed in the Muintir na Tíre hall. We are looking forward to hosting a memorable walk!
