1916 – 2016 Proclamation Day

Today our school prefect team read out on the PA system the ‘1916 Proclamation of Independence’ and raised the new tricolour on the outdoor and new indoor flag poles, presently recently to all schools by President Michael D Higgins.

Caroline Croke of 6th year briefly summarized her great grandfather’s and great granduncle’s role in the GPO who were volunteers during the Easter Rising and Mr Purcell mentioned his great-grand uncle, who was Captain of the Dublin Fire Brigade during the rising. The History Department of Lucan CC are looking for more stories of relatives who fought in or were around Dublin City centre during that period.
