Ireland 24 March: Ballycastle - Letterkenny

We spent the early morning enjoying the fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean out towards Rathlin Island where the pneumatic tyre was invented by John Dunlop.

White Rocks Beach provided a lovely vista while we were waiting for Aivaras to finish off his miles.

Along the way the whole team stopped off at the world famous Giant's Causeway. It was quite a way down from the parking lot to the actual causeway. Although not that far if you're a giant!

As you can see we were very excited and even had high hopes of seeing a giant.

The team catches some air at the Giant's Causeway.

Giant's Causeway is a remarkable geological phenomenon resulting in hexagonal basalt columns rising out of the sea.

Matthias leads us back up the hill.

This morning we ran through the beautiful coastal town of Ballycastle to St Patrick's and St Brigid's Primary School.

We were warmly greeted by the children waving flags they had created representing their heritage.

The children were extremely enthusiastic and we were offered some snacks after the presentation.

The team then split in two in Ballycastle and while one half was out running in the windy weather – the other half gave a presentation at Millburn Primary School in Coleraine.

The headmaster watched from his office at the back – and the Vice-Principal ran around the hall with the torch.

This was very popular with the kids!

The same team then went to Mill Strand Integrated Primary School in Portrush and we were given a lovely cup of tea and refreshments by the headmaster.

The school children wore tee-shirts with synonyms of the word Harmony on the back. Among these words were Peace, Trust and teamwork. We were very impressed! The students had also prepared a beautiful banner complete with small hands circling the words, "World Harmony."

Meanwhile our runners were out on the road, braving the torrential rain and slamming winds – slicing through the walls of bad weather with the torch held aloft – the flame, a beacon through the grey.

We bade a sad farewell to Northern Ireland as we passed through the border on the way to Letterkenny – stopping on the way at Londonderry to meet Mayor Gerard Diver.

The Letterkenny Athletics Club ran the last few kilometres with us on our way to a meeting with the Mayor of Letterkenny, Victor Fisher at the Public Services Centre.

He gave a heart warming speech to the rapt audience.

We were honored to be able to present our Torchbearer Award, to former Olympian and Ireland's National Athletics Hero – Danny McDaid. He spoke of the honour he felt at receiving this award, and how the sight of our international team in their tracksuits reminded him of his Olympic experiences. Some lovely representatives of the Special Olympics Athletics Club who had also run in with us to Letterkenny – mingled with the audience – and joined us on stage to hold the torch. Read more about it in the Donegal Democrat...

We had a satisfying day running through tough Irish weather, and meeting beautiful people on the way. Gratitude to all those who helped us on the road.
