Our Lady's was delighted today to welcome two members of Óglaigh na hÉireann, who formally presented our school with the National Flag. They read out the 1916 Proclamation and presented our school with a copy of the Proclamation. We were also given a poster of Amhrán na bhFiann, our national anthem. The officers taught our pupils about how the National Flag should be cared for and the protocol that surrounds this symbol of our nation.
We all thoroughly enjoyed this very special event in our school and we look forward to further events this year as part of the Ireland 2016 commemorative programme.
