The Irish Flag Presentation

To commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising and to celebrate 100 years since the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, we were delight to welcome members of the Defence Forces whom delivered a National Flag to our School on Wednesday 7th October.

Members of Óglaigh na hÉireann, in uniform, formally presented the National Flag in front our whole School to a 6th class pupil in a special ceremony. The Proclamation was then read by the Sargent Major and two of our 6th class pupils.

We learned how the National Flag should be cared for and the protocol that surrounds this vibrant symbol of our nation.

We would like to thank our special guests for a very interesting  morning.
