Donegal GAA Captain
Michael Murphy will launch Donegal's suicide
fundraiser Darkness into Light 2016 later this week.
Murphy will join Joan Freeman, founder of the
suicide and self-harm crisis centre Pieta House, for

100 locations in Ireland and abroad including in the
US, the UK, Scotland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand
the Middle East and Asia.
This year's event, on Saturday, May 7, 2016, is set
to be the biggest ever in Donegal with seven venues
on board to host it including Donegal Town, Maghery,
Letterkenny and for the first time Buncrana,
Arranmore Island, Falcarragh and Tory Island.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Donegal launch at
