The members of the Defence Forces spoke to us about our National flag and about how our flag should be cared for. This campaign is one of the many initiatives to mark the 100 year anniversary of the Easter 1916 Rising next year.
On 15th March 2016 every primary school in Ireland will raise the flag and the proclamation will be read out.
The pupils in Sixth Class also took part in the ceremony. They created and performed a dramatic representation to give the other pupils some information and insight into the Easter 1916 Rising. Their performance was outstanding to say the least. A big well done to all involved!
