The children of Ballycullane N.S. were delighted to host two members of the Irish Army on the 16th of September. The children helped to read the 1916 proclamation and receive the Irish flag from the special visitors.
Ireland will celebrate the 100 years since the 1916 Rising next year, 2016.
Children across Ireland will take part in writing a new proclamation for 2016, and will develop their understanding of Irish history including that of the Irish flag.
