On Thursday 8th October 2015 Sergenat PJ Maloney and Corporal Des Padden visited our school to pressent us with the a Tricolour and a copy of The Proclaimation. There was music and songs commerating the 1916 rising. Both Officers spoke about the significance of the Tricolour and events that led to the 1916 rising.Dominic Horkan performed a rendition of 'Grace'. Stephanie Grealis accepted the Tricolour, Colm Mc Ellin accepted a copy of The Proclaimation on behalf of the school and Sarah O'Malley read an extract from the Proclaimation. As is evident from the slideshow this was a very memorable day.
