On Tuesday 6th of October representatives from the Irish Defence Forces were guests at a special assembly where they presented the school with a copy of the Proclamation from the “1916” Rising in English and Irish. Also presented to the school was a new Tricolour which the school will raise on March 15th next year on what is being called “Proclamation Day”
On this day all schools in the state will raise their flags and read out the proclamation.
After the presentation the pupils played Amhrán na bhfiann on their tin whistles and the representatives also answered lots of our questions too.
