The Commonwealth Games Baton is coming to Northern Ireland this week and BBC Northern Ireland will follow its journey across the country with a special programme on BBC Two Northern Ireland on Sunday 25 May at 5pm.

The Queen’s Baton contains a message from the monarch, which will be revealed at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Games in Glasgow on 23 July. The half hour programme on BBC Two Northern Ireland will follow the baton as it visits towns, villages and communities throughout Northern Ireland and local well known places of interest from Stormont to the Giant’s Causeway, Rathlin to the Fermanagh lakes.

It will contain interviews with former competitors including bowler Margaret Johnston.
