A feature of every Relay For Life is the Candle of Hope Ceremony which takes place at dusk. This year, this will take place on March 20th on University of Galway Campus.
During the Candle of Hope Ceremony, hundreds of candle bags that have been personalised with messages of hope and remembrance are lit during a moving ceremony.
This is where we will all come together to light our candle bags as a symbol that we are together as a community in the fight against cancer. When you purchase a candle bag online, your message will be placed on one of our bags and displayed at the Candle of Hope ceremony. We will give you your bag number, so you can easily locate it on the night. We would love you to join our Candle of Hope Ceremony at University of Galway Campus from dusk.
Our Online Shop is now OPEN.
You can also purchase candle bags at the event up until March 20th just before the Candle of Hope Ceremony starts.
Candles will also be on sale in various locations throughout the county ahead of Relay weekend.
