Poll: Does having the Olympic flame in Ireland cheer you up?

The flame is here as part of the relay leading up to the opening ceremony of London 2012. Did having it here this morning affect your mood?

THE PROGRESS OF the Olympic torch through its Irish leg continues today with the eternal flame passing through Dublin city and its surrounds.

Some – though not all – of the torch’s route has been carried live on RTÉ One this morning. (You can watch all of the route live on the BBC’s website here).

Does having the torch in the country this morning mean something to you? Does it make you feel more cheerful than usual?

Poll Results:

I feel pretty much the same (1132)
Yes, I feel more cheerful (557)
No, I feel less cheerful, for some reason (274)
