On the 22nd of September 2015 Lieutenant Emma Harney and corporal Tony Walsh visited our school. They presented us with an Irish Flag for the 100th anniversary for the 1916 Easter Rising. They also gave us a copy of the proclamation. One of the 6th class students, Eve McConn represented the school by receiving the flag.Two of the other 6th class students Faye Anderson & Niamh Doyle read the proclamation with the help or Corporal Tony Walsh. We also learned a bit about the defence forces, particularly their uniforms.We are very proud to be a school. In the last school year 6th class went on their school tour to the Aircorp Headquarters so it was good to re-connect with the Defence Forces. We Thank Lieutenant Emma Harvey & Corporal Tony Walsh for their visit and we wish them well for the future. below are some photographs that were taken on the day.
