As part of the nationwide presentation to schools to commemorate the 1916 rising next year, Sergeant Austin O’Sullivan and Corporal Gary Cahill  came to our school on Monday, 16th November to present us with our Irish flag and copy of the 1916 proclamation. Riley in 6th class helped them read out the proclamation by reading paragraph 4. Sally in 6th class accepted the flag. She is the great-granddaughter of Risteard Mulcahy who served as Chief of Staff of the army during the Rising. Sebbie in Junior Infants accepted the proclamation. After the presentation, we all enjoyed the buns which were baked by 6th class. Thank You to all the parents and members of the community who came to help us celebrate this special occasion in our school history.
