1916 Commemoration Day

We had a special day at school today to commemorate the Easter Rising of 100 years ago.
Every body dressed up in old-style clothes. We brought artefacts into school. 4th and 5th classes did a Pageant about the events of the 1916 Rising. The senior Infants sang a song on the stage for the whole school. "Bhi Leipreacan ina Shui Faoin gCrann".
Sergeant David Ryan of the Irish Army 6th Battalion (father of Bonnie Ryan) came into school to raise our tri-colour. All pupils and teachers stood to attention while the flag was raised and sang Amhran na bhFiann, our national anthem.
