Sponsor a light for a loved one this Christmas in aid of the Butterfly Garden

The Butterfly Garden is a community project started by a group of bereaved parents in Swinford,

Co. Mayo. The aim of the project is to create a memorial garden that brings comfort to bereaved families who have faced miscarriages, stillbirth, infant and child deaths, to know you're not alone in a time that can feel very lonely. We want to create a hopeful space showing love for the little lives taken too soon. 


The tree outside Our Lady Help of Christians Church, Swinford, will be lit in honour of loved ones this year.


The Butterfly Garden invites you to shine a light of love in honour of or in memory of a loved one. 


Cost of a light is €5. All proceeds are in aid of the Butterfly Garden. Each sponsor will receive a card for their light of love. 


A mass will be dedicated to all of the lights of love on the 17th December 2021 at 10.00am. This will be live-streamed on

Lights will be switched on the week of 8th December 2021 and this will be live-streamed on The Butterfly Garden Facebook Page.
