Clanna Gael Fontenoy is proudly supporting this year’s Darkness into Light walk in aid of Pieta House.

Occupying a very special place in the heart of the Ringsend, Irishtown and Sandymount communities, the Club and its members will be actively supporting the local walk which takes place in the area on the morning of Saturday 12th May.

Some 2,000 participated in last year’s event which started and finished at the Club. And, although the walk will take a somewhat different route this year, the hope on the part of the organisers and all concerned is for an even bigger turnout on May 12th.

“Over the years it has been particularly satisfying to see Clanns members and supporters involved in community -wide activities and social events”, states Club Chairman, Bernard Barron. “The Darkness into Light walk is one such particularly important event. We’re delighted to be supporting it on the ground locally again this year and we’re encouraging as many as possible to come out the morning and/or to provide financial support.”
