Thousands of people around the world have taken part in Darkness Into Light events from early this morning. 

The event, now in its 10th year, was set up by Pieta House with the aim of raising suicide awareness as well as vital funds for the counselling services for people bereaved by suicide or with suicidal thoughts. 

Here in Ireland, thousands walked or ran in solidarity...

The event wasn't just limited to here though with thousands more marching around the world...

A superb effort by all involved. If you feel you need to talk contact Pieta House on 1800 247 247 or Samaritans on 116 123.
