As part of the preparations for the commemoration of the 1916 Rising, the Government has presented a copy of the 1916 Proclamation and the National Flag to every school in the country. These are presented to the school by members of the Irish Defence Forces.
Our copy of the 1916 Proclamation and the National Flag were presented by Sgt. Lucchesi and Sgt McEvoy, from Dundalk Barracks.
The presentation party were led into the hall by pipers.
Below is a photo of the Presentation Party, the three Principals of the Friary Infants, Girls and Boys Schools and the children who represented all the children of the three Friary Schools.
