The Raising of the Flag

Today at noon, primary schools around the country marked a hundred years since the Proclamation was read by raising our national flag and reading again Padraig Pearse’s immortal words. The students of Scoil Mhuire, Tullamore added to this wonderful occasion by reading their own proclamation – a vision for Ireland for the next hundred years.

In the glorious March Sunshine the flag was raised high by Ava Browne of Junior Infants and 6th Class student Diana Cocis with the assistance of the chairperson of Scoil Mhuire’s Bord of Management Mary Theresa Lynch. The students sang a magical rendition of not only Amhráin na bhFiann, but Grace and of course the Offaly Rover. Huge thank you and praise to Ms. Fahy for organising the entire event!
