Light up a Life Ceremony 2016

Our Light Up A Life ceremony and celebration is taking place on Sunday the 4th of December at 3:45pm in the beautiful grounds of Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Harold’s Cross. I hope you can join us for this moving, magical evening. Thousands of people will gather to commemorate the lives of their loved ones who have passed on, to look back with joy and to celebrate the festive season.

This year, Christy Moore is our guest of honour, and we are delighted to welcome back Ian Dempsey as MC on our outdoor stage.

It really will be an occasion to remember, with marvellous musical acts, including the Palestrina Girls Choir, St. Jude’s Folk Group, The Lineup and the CIE Male Voice Choir who will all perform songs that are guaranteed to get you feeling festive! You can also toast the season with hot apple punch, soup and mince pies and simply soak up the amazing atmosphere. The highlight of the evening will be the lighting of our magnificent Light Up A Life Christmas tree. Every year, thousands of people sponsor beautiful lights for just €6 in the name of their friends or loved ones who have passed. The lights are then displayed in their honour for the entire Christmas period. It’s a wonderful way to pay tribute to those who meant – and still mean – so much to us.

You can also share personal tributes, such as memories, poems or stories, and post photos. This Christmas, remember and celebrate someone special. Light up their life.
