This year, eight members of the Skerries Coast Guard team once again joined thousands of others across the country for the annual Pieta House Darkness into Light 5km on Saturday 9th May.
This year, the town of Skerries hosted its first ever Darkness into Light, with the route starting and finishing at Red Island, beside the Skerries Coast Guard station. Starting just after 4am, the 5km route meandered through the village before arriving back along the South Strand for a memorable sunrise over the Skerries Islands.
