With 50 days to go until the start of the Olympic Games, 67 Torchbearers are set to carry the Olympic Flame on the latest stage of the journey.
The first Torchbearer of the day will be Thomas Haighton, 28, from County Antrim, who dedicates most of his time to caring for adults with learning disabilities. He will start with the Flame in Newcastle, County Down.
Television presenter Patrick Kielty, 41, will carry the Flame in Dundrum. He has been involved in charity work for a number of years, including playing in UNICEF’s annual Soccer Aid football matches.
Television presenter Zoe Salmon, from Bangor, will also carry the Flame. Zoe has been a supporter of the Tickled Pink breast cancer charity for several years, hosting and providing support to events.
One of the day's highlights will be the Flame crossing Lough Neagh by boat. Eorann O’Neil, 16, from Crumlin, nominated for his dedication to swimming, will carry the Flame as it makes the crossing.
The Flame will take to the water again at the end of the day, when it departs Northern Ireland on a ferry, heading for the Scottish port of Stranraer.
The Flame will travel through the following communities: Newcastle, Dundrum, Clough, Downpatrick, Crossgar, Saintfield, Ballynahinch, Templepatrick, Antrim, Ballyronan, Magherafelt, Ballymena and Moorfields, before arriving in Scotland.
