Hope you got photos!

Three weeks until it reaches me, can't wait. From the route map it'll actually be in transit along my road (some kind of convoy?) then the runners start just half a mile away heading for the city centre :)

It's because we're worth it! ;)

Well, the torch relay itself is taking place during work hours, but I'm going to try one way or the other.

And Jedward will be carrying it down O'Connell Street! :lol:

The Gardai figured out it was the safest place for them to do it in terms of crowd control. And they were keen amateur runners in their teens. That's the party line anyway. ;)
