On Thursday 24th September 2015, the national flag and a copy of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic was delivered to our school as part of initiatives to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising. This was a very special occasion. Two members of the Defence Forces came to St.Mary’s N.S and presented us with the Tricolour and the Proclamation. Nicola Beaumont welcomed everyone to the hall, Miya Brill read the Proclamation and Ciarán O’Connor introduced the Irish Dancers. Everyone then stood to sing our National Anthem. It was a lovely ceremony and we are very excited to raise the flag next month.
