Today schools all over Ireland celebrated the Easter Rising of 1916. Our school gathered in the yard and together we remembered all of those brave people who fought for our country in 1916 and in the years after. The original 1916 Proclamation was read out and children from Mr Corry's 3rd class read out their own Proclamation, setting out their visions and ideals for the future. The band played and all of the school sang Amhrán na bhFiann. Padraic then raised the flag high up over our school.
Here is a video clip of our class singing Amhrán na bhFiann today.
