1916 Celebration


1916 Rising Celebrations

Tuesday 15th March was a special day to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Rising. The day began with the Seven Signatories and members of Cumann na mBan marching into the hall. The Proclamation was then read followed by a short drama involving the Signatories and Cumann na mBan. The celebrations also included Irish dancing, singing, music and the reading of "Proclamation for a Modern Ireland" which was created by the children of the school.

The occasion was then marked by the ceremonial raising of the tricolour by the Chairperson of the Board and the oldest pupil in the school.
