Olympic Torch bearers Clare Leahy and Denis Broderick carry the torch over the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge in Ballintoy, Northern Ireland, on June 4. The Olympic Torch relay started at Land's End, the southwest tip of England, to begin an 8,000-mile (12,875-kilometre) journey around Britain, with a detour to also visit the Irish capital Dublin. It will culminate in the flame being brought to the Olympic Stadium for the opening of the Games on July 27.
