National Flag Presentation Ceremony

We had a very special visit today from members of The Defence Forces, Óglaigh na hÉireann, in a ceremony to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising and to celebrate 100 years since the Proclamation of the Irish Republic.

Lt. Moran and Cpl. McCaffrey formally presented the National Flag to the school. They taught the schoolchildren about how the National Flag should be cared for and the protocol that surrounds this vibrant symbol of our nation. Along with some pupils, they read out the 1916 Proclamation and presented a high-quality copy of the Proclamation, which has been produced from the Defence Forces Printing Press.

We will now be looking forward to celebrating Proclamation Day in the school on 15th March.
