Special Olympics Summer World Games 2003, Dublin, Ireland
About five years ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger turned up in Dublin to announce that the Special Olympics might be leaving the United States for the first time and coming to Dublin.

This June, the Special Olympics circus came to town, transformed the city and touched our lives in a most unexpected way. Cynicism and begrudgery was washed away for once, and there was a feeling in the air which I can only describe as magical.

We managed to get a few pictures which (for once ;-) don't quite manage to convey the unique wonder of what we just witnessed. I'm so glad I was here to see it.
