first_imgGlenveagh Castle turned blue for Autism Day. Pic by Geraldine Diver.Yesterday was world autism awareness day. The Autism Family Support Group ltd. organised a family fun day in Glenveagh national park where hundreds of people turned up to raise autism awareness.It has now become a tradition all over the world to light iconic buildings blue to raise autism awareness. Buildings like the Sydney opera house, Eiffel Tower. So the group organised a number of buildings in Letterkenny to go blue over the last number of years eg St Eunans Cathedral, Pole Star Roundabout.These have gone blue again this year but we decided to look outside Letterkenny and as far as we are aware no other heritage site in Ireland has gone blue so we approached Glenveagh and they agreed to light the castle up blue.We had a number of people out in Glenveagh last night at 10pm to see the castle lit up blue. A wonderful sight for all involved.GLENVEAGH CASTLE TURNS BLUE FOR AUTISM DAY was last modified: April 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
