Irish National Flag and Proclamation Presentation
Today the pupils of Scoil Naomh Mhuire NS were proud to be presented with the Irish Flag and two copies of the 1916 Proclamation, one in English and the other as Gaeilge . The ceremony began when the children and staff assembled in the hall, where they were introduced to Corpoal Gillian Davis and Lieutenant Will Hurley. The soldiers spoke to us about 1916, the Irish flag and how to care for our flag. Lieutenant Hurley read some of the Proclamation, assisted by Harry and then Ellen, Jack and Callum Leah received the Flag and the copies of the proclamation on behalf of the school. All the pupils then sang a fine rendition of Amhrán and bhFiann.
