Ireland 26 February: Dublin

'Back to School' for the World Harmony Run team!

Two enthusiastic girls from Ireland sing the World Harmony Run song - well done.

Today we set out to visit 7 different schools in Dublin: Educate Together NS, Rathgar Junior School, Drumcondra National School, Harold's Cross primary School, St Brigids Girls School, St Brigid's National School and finally St Paul's Junior School!

Remind me - which country are we in?

The schools are on both the 'Northside' and the "Southside' - the two sides seperated by the wonderful river Liffey. Along the Liffey there are several historic buildings.

Workers take a welcome break from painting the fence in order to hold the Harmony torch.

A school, a school, but not the one we are looking for.......

Keep looking. A good few kilometres of running to warm up the team before their first appointment.

The children welcome the runners by forming a guard of honour.

High 5! High 10! High 15! High 20............

The children assembled to hear about the run.

Not a spare seat in the house as the children listen eagerly to a description of the journey ahead.

Any questions?

The children pull out their music in preparation for a song.

Who would like to join the team and run to Moscow?

The runners singing the World Harmony Run song.

Where do we feel harmony?

How can we express harmony?

Passing the torch

In the next seven months hundreds of thousands of children will hold the torch!

Don't be shy!

The teachers get a chance to run around the playground to the delight of all the students.

The Statue of Liberty

The staff at 'Super Quinn' supermarket meet the runners and generously supply delectable sandwiches!

A demonstration of harmony

Taking a distictly 'hands on' approach to World Harmony

Time to run with the torch

Delighted by the flame

Children from many countries.

International stamp of approval!

Finally we make our way back to the famous Haypenny Bridge - an appropriate symbol of Harmony in Dublin!
