Donegal poet Moya Cannon will be sharing her talents as part of RTE’s #ShineYourLight campaign tonight.
The event, taking place at 9pm tonight (Saturday), invites people all over Ireland to shine lights in memory of patients who have died as a result of Covid-19, those who have the illness and for frontline workers.
The solidarity campaign will feature special broadcasts across all RTE platforms.
Poet Moya Cannon from Dunfanaghy will feature in a special edition of Shine Your Light with John Creedon on RTÉ Radio 1 at 8:30pm. She will be contributing a poetry reading and the programme will also include music from Irish artists Martin Hayes and Glen Hansard.
At 9pm, RTÉ will broadcast #ShineYourLight, a short live special on RTÉ One television, RTÉ Radio 1, RTÉ Player and RTE.ie/culture to share this moment.
#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.
