Dublin? Am I missing something but the Olympics are in UK and Dublin is not

I thought the same thing when I originally saw the route.

But isn't it obvious? They just wanted an excuse to give the torch to God!

(although I believe Jedward are also carrying it in Dublin. Uuurrrrrgggggh)

Theres a general confusion about that in Ireland too actually. Turns out its something to do with the fact that the Irish Olympic team covers all 32 counties, 6 of which are in the UK. So, the torch goes off-piste.

Are Eire contributing some €€ to the Olympics then ?

Why is the torch over there when many of us on the mainland won't get to see it

The UK Olympic Committee have very generously allowed the flame to make a visit to Ireland (Irish Republic) as a gesture of goodwill in the light of the peace agreement between Ireland and the UK, hence its little journey to Dublin.

Rest assured it will return from its brief detour to the UK very shortly.

How people can scratch their heads at such a neighbourly gesture I don't know.

"Mainland"? What "mainland" do you refer to, the Irish mainland or UK mainland?

Nope. No confusion here Gazton. See post above.
