Proclamation Day, March 15th 2016

Lisaniskey NS raised their Tricolour, along with all other schools in Ireland, in commemoration of the 1916 Proclamation. Our special guest, Councillor Ivan Connaughton, recent winner of the Oran Strictly Come Dancing competition, raised our flag, amid the reading of the original Proclamation by the 6th class children, and the reading of our own school Proclamation by the 5th class girls. We also sang Amhrán na bhFiann – well done Jack! – and we played some St Patrick’s Day tunes on the tin whistle, before finishing the ceremony off with the Script’s “Paint the Town Green.”
