On Monday the 16th of October two members of the Irish Defence Forces paid a visit to Scoil Maelruain. They taught us about the 1916 Rising. They read the Proclamation. Sean also read part of it. They also taught us about our National Flag.They presented Sean  with a copy of the Proclamation and Perside and Ella with the National Flag.  Then we all  sang the National Anthem.

Ms. Dunning brought her great grandmother Bessie Nolan who is 103 years old. She was alive during the 1916 Rising and had a lot of stories to tell us. Bessie starred in the movie ‘Older than Ireland’. Today is her 104th birthday.
