I AM delighted the Sports Minister, Caral Ni Chuilin, has persuaded the UK Olympic Committee to allow the torch to travel throughout the whole of Her Majesty's United Kingdom - including Dublin. It is plain she now supports integration of the Free State back into the UK.
It would really be a feather in her cap if she persuaded the Army cadet movement to provide young, fit cadets to carry the torch down O'Connell Street.
Well done, minister. We always knew you were a royalist at heart.
