Proclamation of Independence Tuesday 15th March

March 15, 2016

Schools and colleges will hold ceremonies this morning marking the significance of the Proclamation of Independence.

 It is the biggest event so far in the 1916 Commemorative programme and will include the raising of the Irish flag, reading of the proclamation and also reading of new proclamations written by pupils, setting out their visions and ideals for the future.

As well as the raising of the flag, and the reading of proclamations, schools have developed their own individual programmes with music, poetry and pageant.
