Today, 6th of June, The Olympic Flame crossed Dublin from Croke Park to St Stephen’s Green. We decided to go and take some pictures of our famous Irish athletes. About 40 bearers carried the torch this morning. How lucky we were to catch up with Bernard Brogan on S. Beckett Bridge! We though we might have missed Jedward and fortunately they were just in the bus behind Bernard Brogan waving their hands to the pupils screaming at them. This give us a little idea of the atmosphere that will be palpable in London.
As we are brave, the crowd did not prevent us from joining the end of the Tour at Nassau Street near Merrion Square. What do you think of the picture we took with Natalya Coyle?
Just so you know, the 70-day relay began at Land’s End, Cornwall, on May 19th and will arrive at the Olympic opening ceremony in London on July 27th.
