A Light At DuskA LIGHT AT DUSK - Remembering those passed -  Halloween Night at 9pm

Dublin City Council through two core projects - ’Holding It Together Apart’ & The Dockers & Demons Halloween Festival, have partnered with ALONE, The Department of Rural & Community Development and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage - to extend a nationwide invitation for the night of Oíche Shamhna.

This invitation to all is to light a candle at 9pm on Halloween night to remember those who have passed away this year, especially from COVID - 19. As the veil rises in the ancient tradition of Ireland’s celebration of All Souls we hold a light for those who we have lost,  in memory of them and standing together with the bereaved. A poignant and difficult time for many, we invite all individuals, families, neighbourhoods and communities, to hold it together apart and hold a light in the heart of their homes.   #alightatdusk
