1916 Flag Raising Commemoration


On the 15th of March, our school held our national flag raising ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the 1916 rising. The tricolour was raised by Mr Eugene O’Gorman – the Chairperson of the school’s Board of Management – at 12.04pm. Two students from sixth class read aloud the original proclamation followed by our school’s new proclamation for their generation. This was written by Rang a Sé and expresses their hopes and dreams for Ireland’s future. The ceremony then concluded with a rousing rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann.
