Flag Presentation Ceremony: On the 16th October we were presented with our National Flag by three members of the Defence Forces, Their names were Kate, Brian (former Knockanean student) and Sergeant Barry Sheehan. When they were arriving we welcomed them with the song The Foggy Dew (the choir and Mrs Mac Namara sang). The Sergeant then told us the history of the Easter Rising 1916. Then Lucy Scullion read an extract from the Proclamation. The sergeant then read out the full Proclamation. He then presented the Irish Flag to Luke Harding and gave the Proclamation to Rhys Mc Govern Wolfe. We then had a Question and Answer session with the Sergeant Sheehan. We finished up by singing Amhrán na bhFiann and The Foggy Dew. We had a great day !! By Hannah Doyle, Amara Mayer and Eabha Warner.
