The Virtual Light Up A Life Ceremony starts at 5pm -on the homepage of

For many people our annual Light Up A Life event and remembrance ceremony in Harold’s Cross marks the official start of Christmas.

This year, sadly we won’t be able to host our magical and moving Light Up A Life ceremony as a public event due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we will be organising a very special virtual event at 5pm on the 6th December which we will share here on this website, on our social channels and will be sent out by email.

We are delighted that Nathan Carter will be our ‘virtual’ Christmas Ambassador this year and Ian Dempsey will return as MC for the 10th year in a row.

Sponsor a Light

Every year, thousands of people sponsor beautiful lights 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.

Sponsoring a light costs just €6 and it’s really easy to do. Just click CREATE A LIGHT above to get started and share your own personal tributes, such as memories, poems, stories or post photos. This Christmas, remember and celebrate someone special. Light up their life.
