Olympic torch blazes through Fermanagh!
Olympic fever struck the county yesterday (Tuesday) as the Olympic torch visited several parts of the county.
On Day 18 of the Olympic torch relay the route included Fermanagh and Tyrone with the torch being carried through the streets of Irvinestown and Enniskillen.
Hundreds of people braved the wet weather to line the streets of both towns to cheer on the torch as it was carried by a number of lucky individuals who had been nominated as torch bearers.
Loud cheers from the crowd greeted 12 year old Oisin McKinley as he ran with the torch through the Diamond in Enniskillen before handing over to Derek Bowles, who in turn handed over to his wife Yvonne, with the help of a kiss.
