On the 7th of October 2015 Lt. Emma Harney visited St. Conleth and Mary’s and presented our school with our national flag. Our flag will be raised, along with all primary and secondary schools, on March 15th 2016.
Lt. Harney told us all about the history of the Irish flag and explained how we should care for it. We had a fantastic display of Irish dancing from four of our students. One sixth class student helped read out the proclamation. All the pupils then stood and sang Amhrán na bhFiann with pride and respect. We had a super day.
