Coláiste na hInse participated in the national flag raising ceremony on March 15th. Schools across Ireland raised their new tricolours to remember the 1916 Rising. Commandant Reynolds and Officer Kennedy presented Coláiste na hInse with their flag, and Commandant Reynolds then read the Easter Proclamation to dáltaí. Our dáltaí had crafted a new proclamation for 1916 with Inion Lennon, and this was read by Aoife Walker. Eric Kilduff recited W. B. Yeats’s poem “Easter 1916” before Eoin Brereton-Hurley and Máistir Strachan performed Amhrán na bhFiann to close the ceremony.
