Over 6,000 people took part in Darkness Into Light Kilkenny this morning. The city was a sea of yellow as dawn broke for the fundraiser in aid of Pieta  House which deals with  suicide prevention.

 There was a wonderful, warm atmosphere as people congregated at James Stephens military barracks before the 4.15 am start which brought people around the city on the five kilometre route 

And afterwards there was a feeling of quiet satisfaction among those who made the effort.
