Presentation of our National Flag by the Defence Forces

It was a very exciting day here at Scoil Mhuire as Sgt Quinn and Gunner Scally presented a copy of the 1916 Proclamation and our National Flag to Scoil Mhuire. The Defence Forces were warmly welcomed by Principal Ms. Doheny on arrival. The children waved their flags and sang Amhráin na bhFiann in full voice. Some students also gave a lovely rendition of our national anthem on tin whistle. It is a day we will never forget.
