1916 Commemorations


On Thursday 12th November Scoil Naomh Áine were presented with the Irish Flag and a copy of the 1916 Proclamation in preparation for the upcomng centenary of the 1916 rising. All classes were busy preraring for the important visit of Sergeant Dave Malone and Private Ian O'Neill to our school. Children sang Amhrán na bhfiann for the Army officers and sixth class played the tin whistle. Róisín Doyle from 5th class and Eoin Doyle from 6th read a paragraph from the 1916 proclamation and Conor Meehan from 1st and Shonagh Dempsey from 4th were presented with the Irish flag and a copy of the 1916 proclamation. The children were given the chance to ask Sergeant Malone and Private O'Neill questions. We look forward to our flag raising ceremony in March 2016
