The students and staff of Scoil Naomh Iosef, were thrilled to be joined by such a large crowd to celebrate Proclamation Day. Amongst those in attendance were Deputy Niall Collins, Deputy Patrick O’ Donnavon, Deputy Tom Neville and Councillor Jerome Scanlon. Canon Ambrose, Fr. O’Dea and two past principals, Mr. Brown and Mrs. Twomey also joined us on the occasion. The large audience enjoyed recitations, music , song and dancing. The children unveiled their Proclamation for 2016, spoke about the history of the Tricolour and the protocol for flying the National Flag. The crowd then moved outside where Michelle Daniels, with assistance from the special guests, raised the flag. The children led the crowd in singing Amhrán na bhFiann. Well Done to all the boys and girls!
