Proclamation Day

Proclamation Day was held on 15th March. We had a ceremony to raise the Irish Flag that was presented to us by the Defense Forces earlier in the school year to remember the 1916 Rising. We were very lucky to celebrate the day with local historian Mairead Evans who raised the flag with fellow member of the Historical Society in Edenderry Therese Abbott and Mariead’s daughter Fionnuala Doyle. Caitlin from 6th class read the Old Proclamation and Victoria from 5th class read the Proclamation for a New Generation which she composed herself. The staff and children sang the Song Grace followed by Ireland’s Call and Amhrán na bhFiann played by the school band.
