Light Up A Life 2019-11-01T13:39:04+00:00

Christmas has officially started!

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, celebrating 140 years of Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services, Andrea Corr will be our guest of honour, and we are delighted to welcome back Ian Dempsey as MC on our outdoor stage.

Our Light Up a Life ceremony and celebration is taking place on Sunday the 1st December at 3:45pm in the beautiful grounds of Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Harold’s Cross.

We hope you will be able to join us for this moving and magical afternoon. 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.

For more information please visit our dedicated website:

An entertaining day for your whole family filled with uplifting songs, Christmas merchandise, food and more!

It really will be an occasion to remember, with marvelous musical acts, including the St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Girls Choir, Sopranos Geraldine McNamara, and Eimear Mangan, who will perform songs guaranteed to get you feeling festive.

You can also toast the season with hot apple punch, soup and mince pies or 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 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 go to our special commemorative website,, where you can share personal tributes, such as memories, poems, stories or post photos. This Christmas, remember and celebrate someone special. Light up their life.

This year’s Special Guest of honour is Andrea Corr.

Please join us for this special ceremony of remembrance
