We let of lots of Balloons in remembrance of those we have lost to suicide and to celebrate the hope we have for the future at the Waterside on the 12th September. The event also highlights the much needed and used Beacon of Light Counselling service. The Centre is always in need of funds.

Cllr Francis Timmons (Independent) said it was a touching display of remembrance and a chance to Highlight the Beacon of Light. We raised €400 after in a raffle for the Beacon of Light. He said the celebration and remembrance is now in its third year and is a popular event.

Cllr Timmons has put down a motion for the September her Clondalkin area committee that ‘’That this Committee calls on the Chief Executive to support the Beacon of Light counselling service in seeking funding from the Council and Government departments.’’
