Shine your light tonight at 9pm

RTÉ is calling on the Irish public to come together to shine a light tonight at 9pm to create a moment of solidarity in our battle against the Covid-19 pandemic. 

President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina are set to shine their light from the Áras.

Government buildings will light up with a host of national and local public buildings across the island shining their beacon lights, along with Irish embassies and missions around the world.

#ShineYourLight/ #LonraighdoSholas is calling on people of all ages, to be as creative as they wish to either power their phone torches, flash house lights, leave a candle safely in the window or even put up Christmas lights, to participate in the initiative from wherever they are.
